Tutors: Graham Denholm, 1 Pump Court Chambers and James Elliott, Wilson Solicitors LLP
As use of detention powers by the Home Office becomes ever more routine and the periods of detention the courts are willing to uphold as lawful become ever longer, it is imperative that advisors working with detained clients maintain an up-to-date knowledge of practice and procedure in this area. James Elliot and Graham Denholm are both recognised in Chambers & Partners as specialists in immigration detention. They have acted in numerous challenges to detention in the Administrative Court and the Court of Appeal, and also regularly conduct false imprisonment claims against the Home Office in the County Court and the Queen’s Bench Division of the High Court.
