Recent Developments in EU law from an immigration perspective: EU citizenship after Zambrano; and the EEA (Amendment) (Nos.1 and 2) Regulations 2012.

Date: Monday 26 November 2012

Time: 18:30 to 20:00

Location: London Office

Venue: Doughty Street Chambers

Speakers: John Walsh, Laura Dubinsky

CPD: 1.5 Points

Fee: Free

This seminar will focus on three important EU law developments with which all immigration practitioners should familiarise themselves:

(I) The development of the concept of EU citizenship in C-34/09 Zambrano, C-256/11 Dereci, C-439/09 McCarthy and C-40/11 Iida v Stat Ulm and the interpretation of that concept in domestic cases such as Sanade and Omotunde. The speakers will give practical guidance on how the Zambrano line of jurisprudence may be deployed on behalf of those seeking residence or challenging expulsion and will also discuss the interrelationship of EU Citizenship with Article 8 ECHR, the best interests of the child and the UKBA's duties under s.55 BCIA 2009.

(2) The EEA (Amendment) (No.2) Regulations 2012 which come into effect on 8 November 2012 and purport to incorporate the Zambrano right will be discussed by the speakers.

(3) The speakers will also consider how the EEA (Amendment) (No.1) Regulations 2012 (in force since 16 July 2012) address the rights of residence enjoyed by children and their parents under EU law, and in particular, the way in which the Regulations purport to reflect the effects of the judgments in C-310/10 Teixeira, C-480/08 Ibrahim, C-200/02 Chen; and C-413/99 Baumbast.
