Many of our greatest citizens arrived in these shores seeking refuge from persecution in other lands.  As a nation we are proud of our record of giving refuge to those seeking asylum in the UK. The Geneva Convention of 1951 created rights for refugees and the UK as a signatory to that convention has to ensure that it is properly applied in our legal system.

Sadly persecution is still a fact of life for many and every year new refugees arrive in the UK.  Asylum Seekers do not always get a good press.  However Broudie Jackson Canter is not ashamed of the work that it does to ensure that those seeking asylum get the best representation they can in very difficult circumstances.

We deal with more than 1250 cases a year largely funded by the Legal Aid Agency. We work sympathetically with asylum seekers to ensure that they feel at ease and can present their often harrowing stories to the authorities backed up with the best possible evidence often through the medium of interpreters who are known to us and trusted.
