Parole Board

Parole Board oral hearings may cover a range of issues such as access to courses, challenges to a sentencing plan, reassessment, and release.

Our counsel can assist with legal issues and any necessary expert evidence.

As experienced prison lawyers, they will be able to provide strategic advice on the process of an oral hearing in advance as well as identify any potential challenges to management or supervision reports as well as appear in the hearing to provide expert advocacy, which may make the difference between a refusal, release or transfer to open conditions.


Adjudications are disciplinary hearings held within prisons to investigate alleged breaches of prison rules.

Our barristers can provide expert representation and advice to help individuals navigate the adjudication process and achieve the best possible outcome.

Judicial Review

The option of judicial review is a complex area of public law where our barristers provide expertise on the lawfulness of a decision or action taken by a public authority, such as a prison or a Minister including in a petition for mercy.
