She is a contributor to Fransman’s British Nationality Law.  Recent work in the field of nationality law includes research for the Northern Irish Human Rights Commission and the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission into how to give effect to the “birthright” provisions of the Good Friday agreement which provide that the people of Northern Ireland can elect to be Irish, or British, or both, a topic recently explored by the Upper Tribunal in the De Souza case.

Aim of Course:

By the end of the course participants will be familiar with how persons living might have acquired their British citizen by birth and the main applications for registration of adult and children. They will have a better understanding of the “grammar” of nationality law and be equipped to tackle particular issues that arise when EU nationals and family members apply to naturalise or register as British citizens. 

Every effort will be made to address participants particular interests of which notice has been given at least two clear weeks before the course.

Spaces Left:
Intermediate, Advanced
Experienced immigration practitioners who have done at least straightforward naturalisation applications and registered children when their parents settle and who are open to being persuaded that more complex nationality law is fun.
Interactive Webinar including worked examples.
