Counsel to give Brexit briefings in Shetland

31 Aug


THE Faculty’s Mark Lazarowicz is Shetland-bound, to take part in two briefings on the implications of Brexit for EU citizens.

The first event is for local solicitors and immigration advisers, and the second is for EU citizens living in Shetland.

Mr Lazarowicz said: “There are more than 200,000 people in Scotland who are citizens of one of the ‘EU27’ countries. Understandably, they want to know what their rights to reside and work will be in the UK after Brexit. Although the UK and EU have reached a provisional agreement about future citizens’ rights, and the UK has announced proposals for ‘settled status’ for EU nationals, there are still many questions about what will happen, particularly if the UK leaves the EU on a ‘no deal’ basis.”

He will be joined by solicitor David Brown, Head of Immigration at Drummond Miller LLP.

The events, part of a series organised by the EU Citizens’ Rights Project, with assistance from the European Commission office in Scotland, are on Tuesday, 4 September, from 5pm at the Shetland College campus of the University of the Highlands and Islands, Gremista.
