THE DOUGHTY STREET IMMIGRATION TEAM SEEKS APPLICATIONS FROM EXCEPTIONAL SENIOR JUNIORS WITH A SPECIALISM IN IMMIGRATION DETENTION – 15 YEARS’ CALL AND ABOVE

Doughty Street Chambers proudly enjoys a national and international reputation for the fearless representation of clients in dispute with the State.  We now seek applications from exceptional senior juniors (15 years’ call and above) with a strong track record of work in immigration detention cases. The successful applicant would consolidate our established expertise as a leader in the field of immigration detention, but would also be encouraged to work across other areas of immigration, asylum and nationality law and adjacent areas.

Our immigration barristers offer a broad range of experience which allows us to provide a high-quality expert service to clients in asylum, human rights, business immigration and trafficking cases.  Team members appear regularly in the Immigration and Asylum Chamber of the FTT and Upper Tribunal, as well as in SIAC, the Administrative Court, the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court.  Members also work regularly in the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union.  Most of the team are ranked in Chambers & Partners.  Team members have been involved in many of the leading European and domestic cases in immigration, asylum and trafficking law.

Across all of Chambers we strongly foster a multi-disciplinary approach to our work, and members of our immigration team work in related areas such as asylum support, age assessments, immigration-related crime and extradition.  Many of our practitioners have acquired experience in a range of disciplines.

If you are interested in joining a well-respected team of exceptionally able and creative lawyers, we would be pleased to hear from you.  Applications will be treated in strictest confidence, and should be made by completing and submitting an application form (available via the link here) by 5pm on 17th January 2020.  Should you wish to speak with us before making an application, please contact our Chief Executive Mark Dembovsky (m.dembovsky@doughtystreet.co.uk) to arrange a discussion.
