Judicial Review

Judicial Review

In certain situations, challenging decisions through the Judicial Review procedure becomes necessary. This is particularly relevant when there is no automatic right of appeal to the First-Tier Tribunal or when all appeal options have been exhausted. 

We possess extensive experience in utilizing the Judicial Review procedure across various cases, including visa refusals and sponsorship licence revocations.

What is Judicial Review?

Judicial Review grants individuals the opportunity to have decisions made by public bodies and some private organisations reviewed by Judges at the Court of Session, the highest court in Scotland. It is important to note that this review process is not a direct right of appeal but typically requires that the decision maker’s internal appeal procedures have been exhausted. 

Grounds for Judicial Review

Any individual affected by a decision maker’s actions may petition the Court of Session for a review if reasonable grounds exist. The grounds for seeking a judicial review can include:

  • allegations that the decision was illegal
  • claims that the decision-maker’s process was unfair
  • assertions that the decision was irrational and unreasonable
  • belief that the decision unduly infringed upon an individual’s human rights
