Welcome to the January 2016 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. In this episode I start on immigration fees and the Shaw Review, cover a long list of tribunal cases on various issues, move on to some higher court cases on EU deportation cases, nationality and deception issues, detention and trafficking and close with two recent Law Society guidance notes.
The material is drawn from the January 2016 blog posts on Free Movement.
