The MLP has taken cases on asylum support, the Detained Fast Track, and Dublin III family reunion for separated children in Europe. We represent individuals or organisations where it has not been possible to achieve a just outcome through negotiation. Our cases pages provide background, briefings, judgments and more information on this area of our work.
