Isaac completed his second six pupillage at Garden Court Chambers under the supervision of Alex Taylor-Camara. He welcomes instruction in all areas, from crime to public law and immigration.
Isaac’s first six was supervised by Amanda Weston QC, where he gained experience across a wide range of public law matters, including immigration and asylum, community care, discrimination, and education.
Isaac’s work to date has ranged from first instance asylum appeals to Court of Appeal cases concerning discrimination in the provision of disability benefits. He recently worked as part of a team of Garden Court barristers who successfully brought urgent judicial review proceedings to challenge the Home Office’s failure to provide visas following the withdrawal of British troops from Afghanistan.
Prior to pupillage, Isaac worked for several non-profit organisations, including Bail for Immigration Detainees and the Public Law Project, and has volunteered for several months in Dunkirk refugee camp and on death row in the United States.
He has substantial experience as a paralegal, working on and helping to draft representations and grounds for claims in asylum, judicial review, and extradition.
Isaac is on the executive committee of Legal Sector Workers United.
