Fri, 03 May 2013

Manjit Gill QC, Abid Mahmood, S Chelvan and Ramby de Mello, members of No5 Chambers Immigration and Human Rights teams have all been accepted onto the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) preferred panel of Counsel. All barristers follow a procurement application process and No5 members have been successfully accepted onto the EHRC panel. 

The Panel of Counsel was introduced in 2011 and it comprised of Barristers (in England and Wales) and Advocates (in Scotland) who can support the EHRC on all legal issues arising out of its functions and activities, including issues with the discreet and challenging area of equality and human rights law. Parliament gave the Commission the mandate to challenge discrimination, and protect and promote human rights.
