Meet the Practitioners: 5 Conversations between Key Practitioners in Borders, Immigration and Asylum Law and Practice from a UK Perspective
This evening seminar series is sponsored by the Queen Mary Immigration LLM and Kingsley Napley LLP. It is designed to provide an opportunity to listen and contribute to structured conversations among practitioners in the field of borders, immigration and asylum law in the UK and internationally on key issues. The content and impact of the Nationality and Borders Bill 2021 where relevant will be taken into account. This series is designed for advanced law students, academics, policy makers and practitioners who are interested in the development of migration and asylum law and constitute a new stage in the cooperation between the QMUL Immigration LLM and Kingsley Napley.
What are the challenges regarding the implementation of the UK's Commitments under the Withdrawal Agreement to EU Nationals living in the UK? A conversation between Kim Vowden, Kingsley Napley and Michal Meduna, European Commission. Chair: Professor Elspeth Guild.
In January 2022, it will be one year since the end of the transitional period contained in the UK-EU Withdrawal Agreement and over six months since the end of the grace period for EU nationals in the UK to apply for a national immigration status to replace their former EU one. As the Home Office has indicated, more than 6 million EU nationals have applied for the national status, but some residents have missed the deadline. In this conversation, Vowden and Meduna will examine the successes and challenges of the UK EU Settled Status Scheme and the way ahead.
