International Human Rights law

 “Human rights belong to every one of us without exception. But unless we know them, unless we demand they be respected, and unless we defend our right – and the right of others – to exercise them, they will be just words … ”

Human rights lawyers at United Legal Experts understand the field well and are deeply committed to client needs. Our experts have experience in human rights abuses such as in education law, child abduction, trafficking, social and health care laws. Human rights abuses can take many forms but we have a vast experience in cases involving:

  • Right to a private and family life
  • Right to a fair hearing
  •  Right to life
  • Inhuman or degrading treatment
  • False imprisonment and deprivation of liberty
  • Actions against the police
  • Sexual discrimination and harassment
  • Racial discrimination and harassment
  • Equal pay claims
  • Denial of healthcare/medication for financial reasons

Besides helping individuals with advice and litigation, we work efficiently to prevent human rights problems. We advise organisations that are concerned about infringements of their own human rights or that are seeking to comply with the highest level of human rights standards across their own activities.
