We are responsible for considering pre-action protocol letters, judicial review challenges and private law claims. Often the legal challenges we manage are complex, novel and politically sensitive and our handling is often in the public eye. This means you will often be working on cases which change and shape the development of the law, particularly human rights law. You can expect some of your cases will have Ministerial interest and many may be featured in the national press.

You will, predominantly, work on judicial review challenges in the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) but may also be involved in cases progressing to the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. Initially, you will develop expertise in a particular area – perhaps around human rights or asylum – and, as you gain experience, there will be opportunities for you to take on a wider range of areas.
