Agnete has been IAAS and OISC accredited at senior level since 2011. Her casework experience since then has covered the full range of immigration work but with an emphasis on cases involving family migration, asylum, human rights, domestic violence, no recourse to public funds issues, trafficking, EEA free movement and British nationality law.
She has provided immigration advice and assistance, including advocacy at the immigration tribunal, at a number of Law Centres as well as Lewisham Refugee and Migrant Network, and is currently the in house immigration adviser at Haringey Migrant Support Centre as well as supervisor to the EUSS project here at PILC.
Between 2015-2017, she assisted public access immigration barristers at Garden Court Chambers, including Mark Symes, and in January 2017 Agnete also joined the research- and editorial team at HJT Training, both on a freelance basis. She currently provides regular updates to the OISC exam resource booklets and the online HJT Immigration Manual ‘Mastering Immigration Law’, and is one of the authors of the ‘settled status’ section in the Manual.
Her representation of a number of ‘Windrush’ clients from 2014-2018, before the severe maltreatment of migrants with rights to live in the UK reached public awareness, informs her passion to avert another such disaster befalling EU citizens, by laying the groundwork for public law challenges in relation to the EUSS scheme here at PILC.
Agnete has now established her own legal practice.
