Paralegal

Isaac is a paralegal in the Citizenship & Immigration team.


Much of Isaac’s work takes place at the interface between asylum and extradition, and involves building a case for international protection whilst simultaneously defending requests for clients’ removal. He also has experience in helping to challenge the government through judicial review, and in claims to international human rights bodies.

Before joining Payne Hicks Beach, Isaac worked as a caseworker for the Refugee and Migrant Forum of Essex and London, where he drafted various Article 8 applications, and at Bail for Immigration Detainees. He has also previously volunteered at a capital punishment appeal centre in New Orleans, and in Calais and Dunkirk refugee camps.

Isaac studied his LLB at University College London, where he was awarded the Sweet & Maxwell Prize for achieving the highest overall performance in his final year. In October, Isaac will begin pupillage at Garden Court Chambers.
