Human Rights and Civil Liberties

Landmark is a leading Chambers in human rights and civil liberties and has been at the cutting-edge of this area of law since its inception.


Landmark’s barristers regularly appear in the leading cases in the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal and High Court, instructed by both claimants and defendants. We have acted in significant cases on abortion, free speech and protest issues, the benefits cap, the bedroom tax, national security, torture and inhuman treatment, protection of LGBT rights and rights impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Landmark has been involved in some of the most important human rights and civil liberties cases and continues to be at the forefront of this area of law.

Our members take on a significant amount of legally aided and pro bono work in this field. Past clients have included Reprieve, CPAG, JCWI, Medical Justice, BID, the AIRE Centre, and the National Deaf Children’s Society.

Examples of high profile and key cases are the following:

A number of Landmark’s barristers have been recognised in Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 for their strength in this area, and regularly give talks which focus on this subject.
