The Citizens Rights Project is organising a series of free on-line seminars looking at EU citizens’ rights in the UK after Brexit, featuring a wide range of legal experts and other speakers. Our next seminar will take place on Thursday 21 May 2020, from 1600 – 1730.
Applications for settled or pre-settled status can be refused if an applicant fails a ‘suitability test’, on the grounds of criminal convictions, or other ‘personal conduct and circumstances’. Alan Caskie will explain the circumstances when an application will, or may be, refused for such reasons: and the methods open to applicants who wish to challenge such a decision. He will also outline the principal differences between the ‘criminality test’ under EU law, and that under UK domestic legislation.
Alan is one of the foremost practitioners in Scotland on immigration law, appearing in a very regular basis in both Court of Session and the immigration tribunals.
