Civil Liberties

Civil Liberties law helps individuals who have been wrongfully arrested, falsely detained, or have received mistreatment at the hands of the Police, the Crown Prosecution Service, or in prison, mental health or other detention facilities.

Under Civil Liberty law, an individual who has had their civil liberties infringed upon are able to seek accountability and redress from the offending public body. Civil actions that can be pursued include:

  • Civil actions against the police or other authorities including immigration detention and unlawful detention under the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
  • Police complaints
  • Pursuing Judicial Reviews of decisions taken by public bodies
  • Bringing challenges under the Human Rights Act
  • Equality and Discrimination claims
  • Challenging failures to investigate crimes
  • Holding authorities to account following deaths or injury in detention
  • Human Rights in Healthcare claims
