Breach of Human Rights
In the UK, human rights are protected by the Human Rights Act 1998. This means you can take action under the Human Rights Act if you feel the Police have breached your human rights.
If your human rights have been violated and an injustice has been done, our Civil Liberties specialists may be able to challenge the actions of the Police
How we can help
Our Civil Liberties specialists act for individuals who have been ill treated at the hands of the police or who have been wrongly caught up in the criminal justice system.

The team is known nationwide for its expertise and effectiveness and pursuit of claims for damages and complaints against the Police.
Our Civil Liberties specialists can help you challenge a decision which breaches your Human Rights and advise you on the best possible cause of action.
If you feel that your Human Rights have been breached by the Police then please call the civil liberties team and one of the team members will be to discuss your case with you and advise you on your next steps.
Different levels of legal aid may be available for your case and we always assess new enquiries to see if they are in scope for funding – this will depend on the facts/type of case and means assessment. Wherever a case falls outside of scope we may be able to offer you a fixed fee and/or our hourly rates. All these funding options can be discussed with our new enquiry team.
