MEET THE INTERN: Justin Johnson


Justin and Hilton HCLC is delighted to welcome Justin Johnson (pictured above, right) to the centre as a summer intern.


Justin first came to HCLC as a volunteer in February 2016.


He had been working in Property Development Management and as a Medical Secretary while studying on the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) at the City Law School.


Since July, Justin has been working with HCLC's Senior Immigration Caseworker Hilton von Herbert. Justin has been assisting Hilton with asylum, nationality and immigration cases. His tasks include conducting interviews with clients, taking instructions, drafting asylum statements, carrying out country specific research and preparing bundles. Justin is hoping to practise as a barrister in the areas of immigration, family and criminal law.


He currently volunteers with the Independent Parental Special Education Advice (IPSEA) charity representing parents and young adults with Special Educational Needs (SEN) at their first-tier SEN tribunal hearings. In his spare time, Justin is an avid rock climber and is the co-author of the online magazine Wealth Press, which explores issues around inequality. He also practises yoga and loves to travel. He is currently learning Mandarin.
