Sangeetha was invited to conduct two of six lectures at the annual Law Friends Society Immigration Law seminar in Birmingham on 18th October 2018. The full-day CPD event provided solicitors and other immigration law practitioners with crucial case law and statutory updates to assist their practice.


Sangeetha spoke firstly about the new Immigration Bail regime, how the new subtle changes have shifted the power to detain considerably from the judiciary to the hands of the Home Office and crucially, Sangeetha provided advice on how to make a successful bail application in May’s ‘hostile environment.’ She then spoke on on Tier 1 of the Immigration Rules and gave a lecture demystifying the minefield that is the ‘genuineness test’ requirements for Entrepreneur applications.
