We can advise individuals and non-governmental organisations who wish to bring judicial reviews of government decisions in the public interest.
We can assist with securing public funding or other costs protection, such as Costs Capping Orders, to enable us to bring a public interest judicial review. And we can assist with the preparation of the evidence that is crucial to the success of a public interest claim.
We can represent from the start of the judicial review, through to the final hearing and, if necessary, in onward appeals.
Our recent cases include challenges on behalf of:
- a number of individuals in relation to the system for providing ‘Schedule 10’ accommodation to people in immigration detention;
- The NGO The Citizens, of decisions by the government to procure personal protective equipment (PPE) on the grounds that there was inadequate due diligence in relation to modern slavery in supply chains;
- The NGO Migrants Organise in relation to the absence of a system to provide litigation friends in immigration tribunal proceedings; and
- The NGO Medical Justice in relation to a policy which allows the Home Office to seek a second medical opinion on whether immigration detention is likely to be harmful.
