Human Rights Issues

The implementation of the Human Rights Act 1998 in October 2000 has facilitated the incorporation into UK law of rights and freedoms guaranteed by the European Convention on Human Rights. This allows the British Domestic Courts to consider Human Rights representations.

In practical effect this act has the potential to affect many aspects of English Law for example Criminal Law, Family Law, Immigration Law to Public order issues.

We can provide legal advise on a wide range of Human Rights issues affecting an individuals rights and freedoms. We have achieved considerable success with Human Rights representations lodged at asylum appeals. Numerous asylum appeals have succeeded by way of the Human Rights articles raised. We have recently achieved a successful outcome under article 8 ,the right to private and family life and article 3 , the protection of an individuals rights against inhumane treatment and/or torture.
