Judicial Review Competition

The HRLA Judicial Review Competition is an annual competition run by the Young Lawyers’ Committee. The competition is open to law students throughout the United Kingdom. It involves teams of two submitting paper applications for permission to judicial review. From the applicants 8 teams are chosen to make an oral application for permission at a London Chambers before human rights practitioners. The two teams who are awarded the highest scores for their oral permission application go on to compete in the final, which involves the substantive judicial review. The Final is held before a crowd in Middle Temple. The Final is judged by eminent human rights barristers and members of the judiciary. If you’d like to know more, read a recent blog by last year’s winners Emma Foubister and John Fitzsimons here.
