Brexit Session – Simon Kenny, Principal Associate, Eversheds Sutherland

Filed under: Advice & Support — Tags: , — Mohammed Alam @ 3:14 pm

31 October and 14 November, LTB 8   1.30pm – 4pm

There are two sessions being delivered by the legal firm, Eversheds Sutherland, on the 31 October and 14 November covering Brexit for our EU colleagues.  These sessions will help us to understand the immigration implications of Brexit and the practical steps which could be taken now in relation to remaining in the UK. Whilst the rules and requirements are still subject to change, the session gives an opportunity to find out more information and ask questions.  A provisional agenda for each session is given below:

  • an explanation of the provisions currently determined regarding citizens’ rights and those yet to be agreed;
  • a detailed guide to the applications which are relevant to you and could confirm your right to live in the UK.  The intention is that this would provide the information needed to make the applications or, alternatively, highlight potential problems which might require further legal help;
  • a summary of the processes used by UK Visas and Immigration to determine such applications, practical issues such as timing and documentation necessary, and how this is envisaged to change between now and December 2020;
  • a practical explanation of how British citizenship applications can be made and the relevance of these to the relevance of dual nationality;
  • a discussion of queries raised.

The session will not be a guide to individual applications but will deal with the points mentioned above and leave at least 1 hour 30 mins for questions.

After the sessions, Simon is happy to pick up queries in private discussions which directly relate to clarification of something which has been discussed, but he will not be able to advise in detail about individual applications and whether they qualify.

There is the option of attending this session via webinar using the software Zoom.  We will also be recording the sessions via Zoom and they will be made available online.  For colleagues attending from the Southend and Loughton campus, you can attend via webinar from your PC, and you will also be able to submit questions via the webinar.

If you would like to attend please email brexit@essex.ac.uk indicating which date you would like to attend and whether you would like to attend in-person or via the webinar.  If you are attending via webinar you will be sent a link with details of how to attend closer to the time.
