Vijay’s practice encompasses public law, immigration and asylum law and civil actions against public authorities, with a particular emphasis on vulnerable clients and challenges under the Equality Act 2010.


Vijay has appeared at all levels up to and including the Supreme Court, where the Court determined the correct approach to fairness in decision-making, under the common law and ECHR (Osborn) and departed from an earlier House of Lords decision in considering the duties owed to indeterminate sentence prisoners (Kaiyam). 

Vijay undertakes pro bono work and has spent considerable time in the past year volunteering as a legal advisor in the refugee camps in Greece.

Vijay JagadeshamGarden Court North ChambersVijay is my usual go to barrister for anything complex or unusual given his ability to consider issues outside of the box. Vijay is always willing to discuss difficult cases, offering not just legal but also practical advice. Vijay responds to correspondence promptly and meets deadlines in a timely fashion. His written work is of a high standard, detailed and focused. Vijay’s advocacy skills are excellent. He is always well-prepared for every hearing and is able to respond to intense scrutiny of the most hostile of judges. I would not hesitate to recommend Vijay in these types of case.
