Out of hours applications for judicial review: a practical guide

Monday 31 January 2022 | 17:00-18:00

Housing and social welfare practitioners often encounter clients in urgent need of assistance, such as those facing imminent street homelessness. Sometimes, it will be necessary to make an urgent application for interim relief to the Administrative Court. However, as illustrated most recently by the Court’s judgment in DVP v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2021] EWHC 606 (Admin), the procedure must be approached with real care.

This seminar will provide practitioners with a practical guide to deciding when such an application might be appropriate and, if so, how it should be done.

David Carter and Daniel Clarke of DSC’s Housing and Social Welfare team are pleased to be joined by Diane Astin of Deighton Pierce Glynn, to share insights from her extensive experience of practice as a solicitor in housing and public law.

There will be live auto-transcription enabled throughout this event and it will be recorded. All guests will have their cameras and microphones turned off automatically for this event. Exclusionary language will not be accepted.

The audio transcript will be made available on request.

Unfortunately, we will be unable to provide a BSL interpreter for this event.
