Nandini Mitra

Nandini read History at the University of Cambridge, graduating with a First in 2018. She is currently studying towards the Postgraduate Diploma in Law.

She joined Wilson’s in September 2021. Her caseload primarily consists of judicial reviews and civil claims challenging clients’ false imprisonment. Her other work includes challenges against the state regarding the Afghan Relocations and Assistance Policy, and evidence of forced labour in the government’s supply chains.

Nandini previously worked for Catherine West MP, during which she assisted constituents across immigration and asylum, social welfare, health, and economic issues. Her policy work covered areas including the impact of COVID-19 border closures on European citizens’ eligibility for the EUSS or British citizenship, and the Home Office’s changed position on former Chevening scholars’ eligibility for evacuation following the UK’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Prior to then, Nandini worked and volunteered at Haringey Migrant Support Centre. She co-wrote HMSC’s evidence submissions to the Government’s inquiry into the impact of COVID-19 on homelessness, with the report focusing on the impact of the No Recourse to Public Funds condition in impeding migrants’ access to emergency homelessness support. The evidence submissions formed the basis of the #NoOneLeftOut campaign, in which HMSC and a number of homelessness organisations across the country successfully lobbied local authorities and the Minister for Housing to expand access to homelessness support to non-UK nationals during the coronavirus pandemic.

Nandini volunteers for the Monitoring Group, an anti-racist advocacy and lobbying organisation.

She is particularly interested in supporting access to the legal profession for young carers and people from socially-mobile backgrounds.
