Judicial Review

Judicial review is remedy whereby a judge will examines the lawfulness of decisions (or a lack of a decision) made by public bodies. 

In an education law context, judicial review may be used to challenge:

  1. A failure of a local authority to put in place the provision outlined in a child’s statement of special educational needs or education, health and care plan;
  2. A failure of a local authority to provide a child with full time education;
  3. A failure of a local authority to ensure that a child receives adequate school transport;
  4. Unlawful decisions to close a school;

Time limits to make an application for judicial review are very short and therefore it is important to get expert legal advice as soon as possible after a decision has been made.
