The Last word speaks to Immigration lawyer Danielle Cohen who will be sharing her expertise in an occasional column in positive nation in 2007.
What made you interested in immigration law? I wanted to help vulnerable and disadvantaged people. At the time it was people seeking asylum in the UK. I later developed expertise in helping women to access the UK asylum process. The natural progression was to help other vulnerable groups within the immigration and asylum framework: children, victims of domestic violence and people with physical mental illness.
