  • Promote and improve the advising and representation of immigrants
  • Provide information to members and others on domestic and European immigration, asylum and nationality law

The result of the European Union referendum has been confirmed, and the UK has voted to leave the EU. While the position as regards our future relationship with the EU is highly uncertain at this time, it is clear this result could have significant implications for EEA nationals and their family members, and potentially more widely on the shape of UK immigration control. The European working group is leading the work as regards what next steps should be taken by ILPA, and would encourage members to join the working group. Prior to the referendum, ILPA commissioned and published a set of position papers on legal issues relating to the EU referendum, which may be of interest to members at this time. In addition ILPA has written a letter to the Immigration Minister about issues with regards to EEA applications and submitted evidence to the British Future's inquiry. ILPA has also produced a briefing for a 10 minute rule bill on persons exercising rights under EU law and their position in the event of the UK leaving the EU, 8 July 2016 available from Briefings page.
