Advanced: EU law: Surinder Singh cases: 2 CPD

About this course

This course was last updated in March 2017.

Surinder Singh is the case that established that when a British citizen leaves the UK to live and work in another EU country, on their return they can bring family members with them using EU law, which is far more respectful of family life than UK immigration rules. This course covers what the law is and how to qualify.
