Welcome to the May 2017 edition of the Free Movement immigration update podcast. This month I’m starting with the current waiting times for immigration appeals, moving on to give some quick mentions to some big blog posts we put out in May and then covering a load of cases from Strasbourg, the CJEU, several from the Court of Appeal and then quite a few at tribunal level as well.
The material is all drawn from the May 2017 blog posts on Free Movement.
