Human rights, civil liberties and judicial review

If you believe your human rights have been denied to you Leigh Day’s human rights and civil liberties team is one of the leading team of practitioners in this specialist area in the country.


Bringing together a mixture of public law, civil liberties, discrimination, health and social care expertise, our lawyers act for individuals, groups and organisations across a wide range of legal areas.  The common thread linking all our clients is that we challenge the lawfulness of decisions, acts, omissions and policies of public bodies and authorities on their behalf. 

"Everybody there is rigorous and methodical, and very diligent. They take on the difficult cases challenging the government where others might lack the guts."
- Chambers and partners 2014

Our human rights solicitors and lawyers are dedicated to ensuring access to justice for our clients in the notoriously expensive UK legal system.
