International law

In addition to pursuing domestic cases at the European Court of Human Rights, members of Garden Court North Chambers accept instructions from around the world and, by way of example, our work has included:

  • Criminal, prison and human rights cases in Mauritius;
  • Criminal, prison transfer and extradition cases involving Bulgaria, Japan and Spain; and
  • Drafting new prison laws for the Maldives.

Our commitment to human rights, civil liberties and pro bono work also has an international scope and includes:

  • Some of our members being on the executive committee of the Bar Human Rights Committee (BHRC);
  • Participating in trial observation and human rights missions to Bahrain and Turkey, leading to substantial published reports for the BHRC;
  • Drafting various amicus briefs, other petitions and submissions on international human rights matters;
  • Opposing the death penalty in the US through work with Amicus and Reprieve;
  • Proving legal advice to refugees in Greek camps; and
  • Working with non-governmental organisations on the drafting of international agreements.

Chambers and Partners 2017 observed that “alongside its stellar reputation domestically, … [Chambers] offers a practice which is international in scope, with members frequently tackling major human rights matters as far afield as Bahrain, Colombia and the USA.”
