Prison Law & Parole
Public Law and Human Rights
Members of Libertas Chambers have expertise in matters concerning prison law from internal prison matters, to Parole Board proceedings and Judicial Review.
We provide representation for clients post-conviction/sentence concerning appeals as well as regarding prison law matters that may arise including decisions to recall a prisoner, prison categorisation and prison conditions.
We have experience in attending prison adjudications to provide crucial representation.
When a client is at the parole stage we provide expert representation at all stages of a parole review, including
- written submissions at Member Case Assessment stage
- applications for an oral hearing
- representation at oral hearings
- advice and submissions for reconsideration of a panel’s decision not to grant an oral hearing or not to direct release.
Members of chambers are also able to offer advice and representation concerning Judicial Review of Parole Board decisions.
We also advise those serving sentences on appeals out of time for wrongful convictions and on petitions for mercy.
