Members of Temple Garden Chambers have extensive experience in a wide range of public law fields, with particular emphasis on national security, immigration, extradition, prison law, European law, inquests and public inquiries. Several members of Chambers are currently on the Attorney-General’s civil panels of junior counsel.

Members of Chambers have appeared in many of the major national security cases of recent years, acting as counsel for the Secretary of State or as special advocate to represent the interests of appellants in closed proceedings.

We are instructed regularly in immigration matters at every level from the First Tier Tribunal up to the Supreme Court. We appear frequently in judicial reviews in which government policy is challenged or the interpretation of EU law, European human rights law or domestic public law is in issue.

Counsel have been involved in many of the leading extradition cases under the 2003 Act, representing requested persons, the National Crime Agency, foreign governments and judicial authorities.

We have been instructed in most of the high profile public inquiries and inquests this century, and any judicial review proceedings which arise from the same.

Members of Chambers are recommended by both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners in the field of Administrative and Public Law, EU Law and Extradition.
