About

James Hanratty is a retired Immigration Judge and former President of the Council of Immigration Judges for the UK. He was also Legal Adviser in the House of Lords to four Lord Chancellors, the Chief Executive of the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand in London and the Legal Adviser in Hong Kong on the hand over of Hong Kong to China.

James draws on these experiences in his speeches, where he exposes the failings in our immigration system, discusses the consequences of Brexit, and the dilemmas surrounding the treatment of Migrants. Finding humour in obscure situations he balances delivers an entertaining speech on such serious subject matter, with much to amuse, but also much to consider and contemplate.

In 2016 his book, The Making of an Immigration Judge, was published.

Speech Topics

Testimonials

Thank you for entertaining us so amusingly at our dinner at RORC. I and everyone really enjoyed your very entertaining speech and the serious bits were very thought provoking. Several people mentioned to me that that evening was the best dinner at Cowes they could remember which I think is down to your speech.
