Welcome to episode 75 of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This month we are covering March and there’s a lot to go over. We’ve got some EU law material, some fairly involved appeals law stuff on when a human rights claim generates a right or appeal or not, we’ll cover a few human rights issues around family life and settlement, briefly touch on some protection claims including a Supreme Court case and then end with mentions for the EU Settlement Scheme and the upcoming Immigration Bill.
