Welcome to episode 69 of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This is a bumper Brexit issue: we’ll be covering the government’s policy on ending free movement for EU citizens, in addition to a healthy crop of cases on EU immigration law while we’ve still got it. There are also some changes to the Immigration Rules on the Points Based System and asylum. We end on how not to get sent to prison by a family court judge.
