Administrative Court judicial review guide: essential reading for practitioners ~ Colin Yeo, Free Movement, 11 August, 2016.
A new 152 page guide to judicial review applications has been issued by the Administrative Court Office. It is vitally important reading for all practitioners:
The Guide does not have the force of law, but parties using the Administrative Court will be expected to act in accordance with it.
There is no equivalent for immigration judicial reviews in the Upper Tribunal, but much of the guide is transferable as a matter of principle.
Detailed legal guidance on bringing a judicial review case in the Administrative Court.
Includes guidance on:
- starting a claim
- applying for permission for judicial review
- substantive hearings
- case management
- specific practice points
- ending a claim
The guide also includes contact details for the court, information on forms and fees, and addresses for serving documents on government departments.
