Sarah Dobbie acts for Asylum Aid in judicial review challenge to the Rwanda scheme

24 October 2022

Sarah acted for Asylum Aid at the hearing before the Divisional Court on 13-14 October 2022 (led by Charlotte Kilroy KC of Blackstone Chambers, with Michelle Knorr of Doughty Street Chambers and Harry Adamson of Blackstone Chambers).

Asylum Aid, a leading charity provider of legal representation to people seeking protection from persecution in the UK, is challenging the procedures adopted for removing asylum seekers to Rwanda on the basis that they are inconsistent with the statutory powers conferred on the Home Secretary, procedurally unfair, and constitute a serious impediment to access to justice.

Sarah is instructed by Tessa Gregory, partner at Leigh Day, with solicitors Stephanie Hill and Carolin Ott.
