Judicial review is a type of court proceeding in which a judge reviews the lawfulness of a decision or action made by a public body.

In other words, judicial reviews are a challenge to the way in which a decision has been made, rather than the rights and wrongs of the conclusion reached.

It is not really concerned with the conclusions of that process and whether those were ‘right’, as long as the right procedures have been followed. The court will not substitute what it thinks is the ‘correct’ decision.

This may mean that the public body will be able to make the same decision again, so long as it does so in a lawful way.

If you want to argue that a decision was incorrect, judicial review may not be best for you. There are alternative remedies, such as appealing against the decision to a higher court.

Judicial review proceedings can be brought against any person or body exercising a public function.

Rules of the Superior Courts provides that an application for leave to apply for judicial review shall be made within 3 months from the date when grounds for the application first arose.

Time Limits within which to take judicial review proceedings of other matters are as follows:

General Matters: 3 months
Immigration cases: 14 days from the date of the decision
Planning Decisions: 8 weeks
Awarding of Public Contracts: 30 Days

Common judicial review proceedings arise in immigration cases such as:

  • Excessive wait times for citizenship
  • Ministerial refusal of an application for citizenship or a visa
  • Deportation orders
  • Ministerial refusal of family reunification visas
  • Employment permit refusals
