Public Law

Along with her specialist immigration work, Jo has a keen interest in public law generally.

She has appeared on a pro bono basis in appeals against the Department for Work and Pensions’ assessment of Personal Injury Payment (PIP) entitlement, successfully representing appellants in both the First-Tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal. Recently Jo was led in a complex  judicial review involving a systemic challenge to the speed of Home Office decision-making in respect of unaccompanied asylum-seeking children.

During her pupillage at 1COR, Jo worked on a wide variety of public law cases including drafting submissions to the Supreme Court and producing written observations for the European Court of Human Rights on behalf of the UK.

Jo was assistant editor of De Smith’s Judicial Review, third supplement to the Seventh Edition (Sweet and Maxwell, 2016). Listen to Jo discuss A Rogue Prorogation on episode 94 of our podcast Law Pod UK here.
