The Migrants' Law Project is joining Asylum Aid

The Migrants’ Law Project is a legal and public legal educational project. It works to enforce, advance and defend the legal rights of people seeking asylum and others with insecure legal status through securing substantive changes in policy and practice.

The MLP joined Asylum Aid in 2023 from its previous home at Islington Law Centre.

We joined forces because we know that there is a severe lack of access to quality legal support for vulnerable people with insecure legal status in the UK.

Without it, people with insecure legal status can find it extremely challenging to access and defend their basic rights.

By coming together, we can further our joint work to ensure that all those who come to the UK in need of protection from persecution and other forms of human cruelty obtain it, and are treated fairly and with dignity.

More information about the MLP’s incredible track record of securing change for their clients can be found here.


Alison Pickup, Director of Asylum Aid, says:

“We are so delighted to be welcoming the incredible Migrants’ Law Project into Asylum Aid. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to join forces with a highly expert team, and a huge step forward for our work achieving impactful, long-term change in the asylum system for our clients, and all those seeking protection in the UK.”


Sonal Ghelani, MLP Lead Solicitor, says:

“The Migrants' Law Project is delighted to be joining Asylum Aid. We have long admired their work to protect asylum seekers', refugees' and migrants' rights, and are excited to continue to develop our work within this excellent team.”
