Regular Free Movement readers will have noted the recent addition of the Garden Court Chambers logo to Free Movement at the top of the sidebar and some excellent recent posts by some of my new colleagues, Ronan Toal, Greg Ó Ceallaigh and Taimour Lay. There will be further future contributions from other members of the immigration team at Garden Court. The editorial team has expanded and now consists of me, Helen Foot, Taimour Lay, Abigail Smith and Bijan Hoshi.

I hope that additional input from a range of editors and authors will make the tone and content of the blog more varied and interesting. It will also be a more sustainable project going forwards.

On a related note, Garden Court last week formally announced a significant expansion. Fifty seven new tenants have been taken on, myself included, taking the total to 187 tenants across the full mix of common law areas.

The expanded immigration team includes the following new members:

Some of you will be aware that Garden Court does currently have an immigration blog of its own. We will shortly import the posts from that blog to Free Movement so that they are still available in the Free Movement archives (also marked with the Garden Court Chambers tag and entered into a Garden Court Chambers category) to make it easy to find them). After a couple of weeks the old blog will be deleted.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Currently working on expert witness statements for someone from Ghana and another from Sierra Leone. I have written many of these and the countries concerned include both the above and Nigeria and Zimbabwe. Always prepared to assist someone have a fair and accurate trial – to my surprise not always the course of our justice system.
