Monckton Chambers is at the forefront of the fast development in the law of freedom of movement and immigration. We advise and act in cases regarding all aspects of freedom of movement, including cases relating to EU citizens and their family members, as well as Association Agreements between the EU and non-Member States. Of particular significance to members’ practices are cases involving the rights of workers and the self-employed.

Members consistently appear in the leading EU freedom of movement cases in both domestic courts and in the Community Courts.

Allied to our strength in EU freedom of movement cases, we have extensive expertise in asylum and humanitarian protection law as it develops within the framework of the Qualification, Reception and Procedure Directives.

Members of Monckton Chambers appear in leading cases in the field from tribunal-level appeals to references to the European Court of Justice.

We also have wide experience in domestic immigration cases at all levels, but particularly on applications for judicial review and statutory appeals to the Court of Appeal and The Supreme Court.

Specific areas of expertise include:

  • Freedom of movement and residence for EU citizens and family members
  • Freedom of movement rights under EU Association Agreements
  • Immigration Acts
  • Posted workers
  • Refugee law and the Qualification Directive
