Public Law & Judicial Review
Our multi-disciplinary Public Law & Judicial Review Group fearlessly represent the individual against the unlawful exercise of power in immigration, housing, crime, prison law, education, care and more.
In demystifying this often underused but vital remedy, we are able to offer assistance at all stages in proceedings - from advising on the merit of an application for JR, to preparing grounds and providing high quality representation..
Just some examples of our challenges:
- Crime: decisions of the CPS (e.g. to prosecute young people); the magistrates court; and the crown court (e.g. to refuse/revoke bail).
- Police: decisions to caution where insufficient evidence; to disclose information; to “record” a crime and “detect” an individual as responsible; and decisions of the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
- Immigration: decisions of the Home Department, Entry Clearance Officers, the First Tier Tribunal, and the Upper Tribunal; decisions to remove), to reject applications as “fresh claims”, and to refuse permission to appeal; actions for unlawful detention
- Parole Board: decisions to refuse parole or an oral hearing.
- Education: decisions on admissions, exclusions and special educational needs.
