In the field of public law, Reuben has strong judicial review experience, with particular expertise in asylum, immigration, human rights and nationality law. He is regularly instructed against central government challenging home office decisions including fresh claim rejections, removals, clearly unfounded certification, entry clearance refusals, administrative reviews, delays in decision-making, age disputes and unlawful detention cases. This experience  proves useful in his Animal Rights practice. Reuben strongly believes in the constitutional importance of public law as a mechanism to protect the rights of human and non-human entities.
