Immigration update podcast, episode 74

Welcome to episode 74 of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This month we’ve got a couple of Supreme Court decisions to cover then a carousel of other cases on detention, the rights of British children to live with their parents in the UK, asylum, EU law, human rights, citizenship and the future of the immigration system. We start, though, by talking a little about what the coronavirus might mean in the short, medium and long term for immigration law and practice.
