Ms Claire Sephton

I qualified as a solicitor in 1991 and then worked in the voluntary sector -  at North Kensington Law Centre, Shelter and more recently at ATLEU (the Anti Trafficking and Labour Exploitation Unit)). After starting out in juvenile crime and civil actions against the police I then specialised in housing law, asylum support and human rights. 

I graduated with a BA (Hons) Law degree from The University of Kent at Canterbury.

I have been involved in various forums, including the Law Society’s Housing Law Committee and the Executive Board of the Housing Law Practitioners' Association.

I am a co-author of the Housing Law Casebook, 5th edition published by the Legal Action Group, 2012.

My research interests are in housing law, civil litigation and access to justice.
