Welcome to the (rather belated!) August 2015 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. In this episode I cover some important EU law issues on spouses, retained rights and sham marriages, a few asylum issues including irregular entry by refugees, a successful social services age assessment, some updated Home Office policies, some news from the Supreme Court on upcoming cases and I finish with a case on costs in judicial review cases.
The material is drawn mainly from the August 2015 blog posts on Free Movement. I will be aiming to catch up with September and October in the next few days.
