Post Windrush - Status Tracing to Prove Historic Claims to British Citizenship
British citizenship law can prove to be one of the most complex and challenging areas of immigration practice.
This new full day course guides practitioners through historic status tracing outlining relevant tests and evidence required to satisfy claims to British citizenship either by descent or otherwise than by descent.
The course also deals with the Immigration Rules which prevailed up to 1 August 1988 which preserved the equivalent of ‘free movement’ rights for the spouses and children of Commonwealth citizens.
