Judicial and Administrative Review
We represent our clients in all the courts including the High Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights. In cases where you do not have a right of appeal, you can still challenge the decision by way of Judicial Review. Judicial review is a procedure by which some one affected by a decision, action or failure to act of a public authority including UK Border Agency may make an application to the High Court or Upper Tribunal Immigration and Asylum Chamber. Court will decide whether the authority has acted lawfully or unlawfully.
Here are few examples of acting unlawfully;
- An act without the legal power
- So unreasonable that no reasonable decision-maker could have come to the same decision or done the same thing
- Unfairness and without observing the principle of natural justice
- in breach of European Community Law or the Human Rights Act
There is a 3 months deadline for making an application for judicial review, from the date of the act or omission that is being challenged, although there is an obligation on the person wishing to make an application for JR to act promptly.
