£135+VAT (Member price)
The UK government is shortly to begin negotiations with the remaining 27 EU states on the terms of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. The European Council has indicated that its first priority for the negotiations is to agree on guarantees to protect the rights of EU citizens and their family members.
In a 3 hour seminar, Grace McGill and Darren Stevenson of McGill and Co Solicitors will look at the residency situation for EEA nationals and their family members, along with UK nationals affected by Brexit. Bringing their many years of experience in UK immigration law and with Government policy to bear, the seminar will examine the likely outcome of the negotiations in terms of the entry and residency rights of EU nationals and their family members. At the time of advertising this seminar, much is unknown about precisely how the negotiations will play out and by September 2017 there is likely to be progress in the negotiations. Grace and Darren will bring their experience to bear in making sense of the developments, through an examination of applicable precedents, the legislative background and Home Office operational policy.
This talk will be invaluable for anyone seeking to understand the likely practical impact of Brexit on their EU family members, colleagues, clients or employees, and will be delivered against a background of fast moving contemporaneous political developments.
The event begins at 2pm. Delegate registration is open from 1:30pm.
