21st May, 15:00-16:30

The EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) is a pilot for post-Brexit immigration schemes. While public lawyers’ attention is focused on the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are serious issues with the EUSS that will come to fore when the transition period ends in December.

In this Zoominar, our speakers will address present and upcoming issues with the EUSS that should be on public lawyers’ radars, including:

  • Automated decision-making
  • Difficulties for EU citizens’ family members, including victims of domestic violence, in securing status
  • Individuals who lack the mental capacity to apply
  • Barriers to prisoners securing status
  • Differences in treatment for individuals granted pre-settled status rather than settled status
  • Difficulties arising from there being a digital proof of status

Adrian Berry, Garden Court Chambers – access to social security

Alexandra Sinclair, Public Law Project – SI’s restricting access of people with pore settled status to public funds

Alice Welsh, Public Law Project – digital status

Leonie Hirst, Hirst Chambers – Mental Capacity policy issues in the EUSS scheme

Chair: Ollie Persey, Public Law Project
