Jane Elliott-Kelly

Jane practises in a broad range of civil and public law, with a particular focus on immigration and asylum law. Jane has also been instructed in a variety of civil cases, including private housing matters, commercial litigation and media law.

Immigration - Asylum & personal

Jane is regularly instructed in statutory appeals in both the First-tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal. She has appeared in a range of cases including asylum, human rights, deportation, EU law, domestic violence, and entry clearance appeals. She has represented extremely vulnerable clients, including victims of torture, domestic abuse and trafficking.

Jane is also experienced in advising in judicial reviews challenging removal, detention, EEA and non-EEA certifications, trafficking decisions, fresh claim refusals, and other immigration related public law challenges.

Jane also provides regular training on immigration and asylum law, both in chambers and at solicitors’ firms. Recent topics have covered the Immigration Act 2014, challenging deportation proceedings and Article 8 appeals.

Immigration Business and commercial

Jane is regularly instructed in points-based appeals in the First-Tier Tribunal, including entrepreneur and student cases. She has also been instructed to advise and draft grounds in a number of judicial review challenges to the revocation of sponsor licences.

Jane has delivered training to solicitors on challenging sponsor licence suspension or revocation. 

Media law

During pupillage at Doughty Street, Jane assisted on a broad range of work in Chambers, including in the Mobile Telephone Voicemail Litigation under the supervision of Anthony Hudson QC. Following completion of pupillage she continued to assist on an ad hoc basis in relation to ongoing compliance issues.

Jane is currently on the night-lawyer rota for a large, national newspaper. 

General Civil

Jane has acted in several private housing matters, appearing in the County Court, High Court and Leasehold Valuation Tribunal in both substantive and interim hearings. She represented one client in a claim for unlawful eviction, successfully arguing that the client was a tenant of a charity landlord and therefore was entitled to statutory protection.

Prior to pupillage, Jane was a member of the Free Representation Unit representing lay-clients on a pro bono basis at the Employment Tribunal; during pupillage she assisted several members of Chambers in the Employment team and she is keen to develop this area of practice.
