Lucy Mair, human rights barrister who specialises in representing particularly vulnerable victims of human trafficking, domestic violence, torture, and sexual or other forms of exploitation at all levels in their immigration and asylum appeals and in judicial reviews before the Upper Tribunal and Administrative Court. Before coming to the bar in 2011, she worked in the fields of human rights and refugees for over a decade. Most recently she worked at Human Rights Watch, during which time she opened and managed the first Jerusalem field office and researched and authored full length human rights reports. Lucy Mair regularly undertakes pro bono work with Bail for Immigration Detainees and in other circumstances where clients are not able to afford representation, and she has spent considerable time volunteering as a legal advisor in refugee camps in Greece during the Mediterranean refugee crisis.
