January 2014 immigration update podcast

The online CPD training and membership package on Free Movement is nearly ready for a public launch, hopefully next week if the final preparations go well. In advance, I’m making the update podcasts that go with the update CPD courses available to all readers for free. I hope these will be helpful and interesting for all, but if you want to claim CPD you will need to do some further reading as well and complete the 10 question quiz in the members area.

February and March to follow immediately and April once I’m over my current cold.

I’ve tried to make the podcasts as accessible as possible by keeping them short at around 20-25 minutes and also publishing them to iTunes so that they can easily be subscribed to and automatically downloaded for commutes and the like on mobile devices. I use Apple’s own Podcasts app for that purpose.

The sound quality is OK, I hope, and has already improved slightly in later podcasts as I’ve learned how the software works. Do please let me know what you think in the comments below.


Free Movement podcastWelcome to the January 2014 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This month’s update covers a range of subjects including Home Office litigation delays, a few tribunal determinations and a couple of important European cases. The material is all drawn from the January blog posts on Free Movement.

The downloadable 20 minute audio podcast follows the order of content below, which is grouped by theme rather than in chronological order.

Duty to give reasons
