As part of Law Friends’ continued dedication to equality and human rights, here Great James Street’s Chengetai Mupara returns to talk about the latest developments regarding those people seeking British nationality, especially those who may have suffered injustice in the past, specifically:
What is the aim of the Nationality and Borders Act 2022? Historical injustice Marriage to a British national before 1983 Maternal grandparents born in the UK The position before 1983 The aim of the 2022 act Who will benefit from the new British Nationality and Borders Act?

He now has a busy practice and regularly appears in the First-tier Tribunal (“FTT”) and Upper Tribunal of the Immigration and Asylum Chamber, County Court, Crown Court and Magistrates’ Courts.
