Judicial Review PROCEEDINGS


Judicial review proceedings involve a challenge to the legal validity of a decision. It may have departed from the procedures which either by statue or at common law as a matter of fairness ought to have been observed. The decision itself may be found perverse, or irrational or grossly disproportionate to what was required.

Judicial review in immigration case

In immigration and human rights cases, Judicial review may trigger about those decisions where there is no right of appeal or where all appeal rights have been exhausted.

The vast majority of judicial review proceedings concern aspects of asylum and human rights claim; i.e. where fresh claim is refused or a claim is certified or declared unfounded; deportation and removal cases as well as where a person’s application to register or naturalise is refused as a British citizen.
