Human Rights

Human rights are a major part of Jonathan’s practice. He is developing particular expertise representing claimants in asylum and immigration cases, centred on the right to private and family life (Article 8), the right to asylum or humanitarian protection, and the prohibition on inhuman/degrading treatment (Article 3).

In his prison law practice, Jonathan advises and prepares applications for judicial review on behalf of long-sentence prisoners in cases involving the right to liberty (Article 5). Recently this has included a challenge to Coronavirus prison restrictions breaching the right to respect private and family life (Article 8).

Jonathan’s inquest practice also regularly involves human rights issues, where the right to life (Article 2) can be engaged.

As human rights issues tend to cut across different legal areas, Jonathan’s human rights practice is set out in more detail under the Immigration, Public Law and Inquests sections of his profile.

Jonathan is also a member of the UK Human Rights Blog‘s editorial team, and is recommended as a Rising Star by The Legal 500.
