The Commission is the regulatory body responsible for enforcing the Equality Act 2010. It is accredited by the United Nations as an “A status” national human rights institution. The Commissions duties include reducing inequality, eliminating discrimination and promoting and protecting human rights.

James has been on the Commission’s C Panel since 2015. His work on behalf of the Commission has included its assessment of Premier League football clubs’ compliance with their equality law duties towards disabled supporters, and its inquiry on the provision of reasonable adjustments to defendants with mental disabilities in the criminal justice system

James has a multi-disciplinary practice, with particular emphasis on and experience in tort law (including clinical negligence), inquests and inquiries, criminal law, public law, and human rights and equality law.
