Jared is a door tenant at GCN.


Jared was a full tenant at GCN until September 2015 when he commenced a permanent position at the University of Liverpool Law Clinic supervising students in immigration and asylum work.

In his role at the Law Clinic, Jared has conduct of a caseload that includes asylum, statelessness, human rights (mainly Article 8) and immigration cases.  He also takes part in the wider social justice mission of the Law Clinic.

Jared continues to retain strong links with GCN through his door tenancy status and will seek to develop and link strategic litigation efforts between the Clinic and Chambers, facilitate knowledge and best practice exchange, bring a complementary perspective to training events, and provide feedback on developments in Home Office policy that may assist the clients of both organisations.

In practice as a tenant at Chambers (2010 - 2015), Jared focused primarily in asylum and immigration law, judicial review, and private child law. Recent judicial review cases include challenging certification of asylum claims as unfounded, ‘fresh claim’ refusals and Dublin Treaty returns. 

Before commencing pupillage and subsequently tenancy, Jared held several senior immigration caseworker roles in both NFP and private legal practice.
