Chambers is delighted to announce that Charlotte Bayati has been selected as a finalist for the category of “Legal Aid Barrister of the Year” in the highly prestigious LALY Awards 2020, organised by the Legal Aid Practitioners Group (LAPG). 

There will be an online ceremony which will take place on 7th July and the LAPG’s press release announcing the short-lists can be accessed here.

Charlotte practises in immigration, asylum and nationality law appearing at all levels up to and including the Supreme Court. Charlotte is recommended as Leading Junior in Band 2 by the Legal 500 as having an “outstanding reputation in London for her representation in asylum, immigration and human rights cases which contain an alleged abuse of executive power. She is widely sought after and highly regarded by the judiciary and at the Bar”

Throughout her career at the Bar, Charlotte has worked tirelessly to highlight the plight of Tamil Sri Lankan refugees, many including women subjected to sexual/gender-based violence, resulting in numerous reported cases in the Upper Tribunal (UT) and Higher Courts.  Many of her cases were partially conducted pro bono before public funding was granted, showing her commitment to her clients and the work that she believes in.
