Since the watershed Supreme Court case on nationality deprivation involving Shamima Begum in 2021, Ms Begum’s deprivation appeal has now been heard and dismissed by Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) in February 2023.

The Secretary of State for the Home Department (SSHD) has continued its trend in recent years to use deprivation powers in an increasing number of cases.

Presented by immigration expert Lucy Mair, this webinar will provide practitioners with an invaluable update on key developments in this area.
