Rory Dunlop’s CPDcasts

Rory is an official CPDcast contributor and contributes to the following podcasts:



Rory is well known for handling a vast array of immigration matters, as well as public law and human rights cases. He has acted both for and against the Secretary of State in judicial reviews claiming unlawful detention and has appeared before the Court of Appeal, the House of Lords and the Supreme Court in a number of significant cases.

He is consistently recognised by Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 for his immigration work, including business immigration matters; "He is a very effective and bright opponent. One is always struck by the intellectual force he brings to bear on really quite difficult topics." and "He has an intuitive knowledge and understanding of a case, and as an opponent you enjoy being with him. He has the law at his fingertips, and you feel you have to be on the top of your game." (Chambers UK 2015).

He has recently co-authored a book, alongside Graham Denholm, entitled Detention Under the Immigration Acts. It is the first book to comprehensively explore all aspects of the law of immigration detention and is due to be published in early 2015.
