Immigration And Asylum

Central Chambers has from its inception developed a dedicated team practising asylum, immigration and nationality law. Over the years this expertise has been augmented and strengthened so that now its members have represented at all levels where immigration law is practised, the AIC, the Administrative Court, including the Administrative Court sitting in Manchester, the Court of Appeal, and The Supreme Court.

The areas of expertise of members include asylum and human rights, deportation and removal, including the new automatic deportation provisions; fresh claims, detention and bail, including judicial review challenges, immigration related criminal matters, benefits and welfare support, visit visas, students, work permit under the points based system and business applications; family reunion, dependant relatives and applications to enter and remain; matters in relation to EEA nationals including free movement; applications in exceptional or discretionary circumstances.

Chambers conducts regular training sessions that are CPD accredited, the most recent being in relation to the automatic deportation provisions, article 8 and the points based system for migrant workers.

The members of Chambers who accept instructions in this area are:

Nazmun Ismail (Called 1992)

Steve Nikolich (Called 2014)

Mark Pritchard (Called 2017)
