Human Rights

Our complex work overlaps elements of human rights law, a number of political, health and freedom of expression cases have raised human rights issues.

As the UK is a member of the EU and the Council of Europe, UK law gives regard to the rights enshrined under these memberships.

The rights enshrined in The EU Charter are enforceable in national courts if the case involves the application of EU law. This is of benefit in matters where there is a human rights violation, in particular where damages are an issue. The European Convention on Human Rights and Freedoms was incorporated into domestic law through the Human Rights Act 1998.

We have been involved in human rights cases with an international dimension.
