Judicial review is available in immigration cases where there is no further right of appeal to a court or tribunal. For example, if your immigration appeal has not been successful and you have been refused permission to appeal to the Upper Tribunal, your immigration lawyer will be able to tell you if you have grounds to apply for judicial review of that decision. An application for judicial review is made to the High Court of England and Wales or, in some cases to the Upper Tribunal. You will be able to make this application if it appears that a public authority has not behaved according to the rules they must follow when dealing with your case.
Judicial review may also be available if your immigration or asylum application has been refused and you have not been given a right of appeal against that decision, or if the Home Office has refused to accept your further submissions as a fresh claim for asylum. If you have applied for asylum support and accommodation and your application has been refused or suitable accommodation has not been provided to you, you may be able to apply for judicial review.
If you are detained or facing removal from the UK, our immigration lawyers will be able to advise you whether you can apply for judicial review of whether your detention is legal or whether you can apply to the court to stop your removal from the UK.
We are also able to advise survivors of trafficking and/or modern slavery if they have received negative decisions from the Home Office or have been refused leave to remain in the UK.
All of our immigration solicitors have extensive experience and an excellent track record in judicial review cases. Our immigration solicitors will also be able to advise you on whether or not you will be entitled to Legal Aid funding for your application for judicial review.
Our solicitors have been changing the law in immigration with numerous reported cases in the law courts.
More information on these matters can be found in our public law section.
