James holds a Law Masters (LLM) in Legal Practice (LPC) from the University of Law having graduated in 2016. Broadly speaking, his Masters dissertation was based on the interaction between the UK’s domestic Immigration Rules and the European Convention on Human Rights.

Prior to that, he graduated with a History (BA) from Royal Holloway University of London in 2013 and later that year made his formal conversion to Law at the University of East Anglia (GDL). During his academic studies, he also volunteered for the British Red Cross to provide practical advice and support to refugees and asylum seekers.

He joined Wilsons in June 2014 and is a practising Solicitor at the firm specialising exclusively within the area of UK immigration law. He is also accredited as a Senior Caseworker by the Law Society’s Immigration & Asylum Accreditation scheme.

He advises primarily on private matters in wide range of areas including:

  • Human Rights litigation
  • Judicial Review proceedings
  • Family Migration
  • UK Ancestry Visas
  • Visit Visas
  • European Union free movement rights
  • Post Brexit settlement rights
  • British Nationality Law
