Legal Director at Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants
Nicola has ten years’ experience working in immigration and asylum law and is currently a Legal Director at JCWI. She qualified as a solicitor in 2009 and is also an IAAS level 2 accredited caseworker. Nicola has a particular interest in legal aid work and assisting the most vulnerable: including victims of torture, those with mental health issues and victims of trafficking.
We live in an ever increasing hostile environment to immigrants, asylum seekers and refugees. The media and the government share responsibility for dehumanising this often vulnerable class. They seem to be no one's concern, let alone priority.
