JUDICIAL REVIEW APPLICATIONS DURING CORONAVIRUS

leave a comment »


On 24 March 2020, the Administrative Court emailed guidance measures for urgent judicial review applications to the members of the Administrative Court User Group which includes the Administrative Law Bar Association to reflect the government’s guidance on social distancing, due to COVID-19.

Effective from 25 March 2020, and until further notice, the Administrative Court Office will no longer accept judicial review applications for immediate or urgent consideration over the counter, by post or by DX.

The guidance was subsequently updated on 27 March 2020 to include information on the procedures to be followed for non-urgent judicial review applications.

The guidance, which provides details of the email address to be used, includes information on:

 – Payment of fees.

 – The requirements of an electronic bundle, which are the same for both urgent and non- urgent judicial reviews.

 – The conduct of the hearings.

What is apparent from the new guidance is that some processes, particularly concerning non-urgent judicial review claims, initially may take longer such as the consideration of an application for permission to apply for judicial review on the papers and the hearings of non-urgent business which may take longer to come on.
