Our EU/EEA page on the main website is perhaps unsurprisingly a 'work in progress'.

An extract:

UKLGIG will not attempt to produce other than very general guidance in relation to Brexit, but we list below various interim guides from within the legal community which we understand will be updated as the UK and EU positions become clearer.

The most up to date and comprehensive self help guide that we have seen, was prepared for an open meeting titled “EU nationals – Understanding your options post Brexit” which took place in London on 26th July, 2017. The guide is authored by members of the immigration teams from Wilsons Solicitors and Wesley Gryk Solicitors, including Matthew Davies and Wesley Gryk who are themselves founders of UKLGIG.

The Immigration Law Practitioners Association (ILPA) have published a series of information sheets providing an overview of EU rights of residence and issues affecting citizens from European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland and their family members living in the UK in the context of Brexit.
See also the ILPA Brexit advocacy series e.g. “Securing EEA Nationals’ Residence Rights”, “Rights to Remain after Brexit”.

A series of free e-book guides has been produced by Colin Yeo [immigration and asylum barrister, blogger, writer and consultant at Garden Court Chambers in London]. These are aimed at EU and EEA nationals wanting to apply for residence documents in the UK on the basis of being workers, self-employed individuals, self-sufficient individuals or students, for making applications for documentation confirming your right to be in the UK under European law.

The FreeMovement website and blog edited by Colin Yeo contains a wealth of commentary about Brexit related issues e.g.
What is the UK proposing ? Analysis 27th June, 2017
Comprehensive sickness insurance – Who needs it ? 23rd January, 2017

We regret that UKLGIG and/or UKLGIG volunteers are not in a position to help with specific questions on individual issues, including those relating to BREXIT. Where possible we will attempt to signpost to relevant existing resources, either on our own website, or on other websites we believe to be reliable.
UKLGIG disclaims any liability resulting from reliance on such information. You are strongly advised to seek professional legal advice from a qualified immigration solicitor.
