DATE: 10 Nov 2017

At a joint event of the Bar Pro Bono Unit and the Young Barristers Committee, Leon Glenister was presented with a certificate of recognition by Sir Robin Knowles for his contribution to pro bono unit.

The Bar Pro Bono Unit particularly highlighted a case where Leon acted in the Court of Appeal for an individual who had been refused leave to remain thus separating him from his daughter. Leon successfully obtained permission following which the Secretary of State conceded the claim.
