Prison Law

The Prison Law Team at One Pump Court represents prisoners in all aspects of Prison Law, including categorisation disputes, adjudications, parole hearings and judicial review. We accept instructions both through traditional methods from solicitors and through our innovative scheme where prisoners contact Chambers directly. Members also advise on appeal against conviction and/or sentence – please see the Crime Team page for more detail on this aspect of our practice.

Members represent prisoners at adjudication hearings before an Independent Adjudicator regarding any disciplinary offences.

Please see the Appeals section of the Crime Team page.

Members advise upon and appear at judicial review hearings regarding any aspect of Prison Law, from categorisation to the availability of offending behaviour courses and decisions of the Parole Board.

Members appear at hearings before The Parole Board where applications are made for release or for a recommendation of transfer to open conditions.
