Welcome to the May 2019 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This was a mercifully quiet month in immigration law, for a change, but there’s still a few decisions from the Court of Appeal to be aware of — particularly on asylum and trafficking — as well as an important process change for Zambrano applicants. There’s a useful judgment on damages for unlawful detention from the European Court of Human Rights and a new Shortage Occupation List coming in, and we also chat about the EU Settlement Scheme and the new Immigration Services Commissioner.
