Colin Gregory qualified as an IAAS senior immigration caseworker in 2009 and as a solicitor in 2015. He joined Bhatt Murphy in August 2021 as a solicitor in our immigration detention and migrants’ rights team.
Colin specialises in representing those who have been detained by the Home Office, in public law and private law claims. He has worked on many successful immigration-related judicial review applications and civil claims for damages. He is particularly interested in cases which protect and enforce the rights of victims of human trafficking.
Since late 2019 Colin has been researching and teaching at the University of Leeds, where he was part-funded by a Liberty Scholarship to undertake an LLM in International Human Rights for which he was awarded a distinction and the highest mark in his year group in 2020. Colin is currently funded via an Economic and Social Research Council Scholarship for a PhD regarding the criminalisation of victims of human trafficking and has recently published a journal article in the European Human Rights Law Review and a separate blog post on the ECHR Blog regarding the landmark Strasbourg Article 4 ECHR case VCL and AN v UK.
