Many human rights matters involve judicial review which is a process by which the courts exercise a supervisory jurisdiction over the exercise of public functions by public bodies.
Claims for judicial review (save for certain exceptions) must be brought within three months of the date on which the grounds for bringing the claim first arose. Time limits are normally enforced strictly and a failure to comply will usually result in permission being refused.
Obtaining a successful result in a judicial review case can be challenging. The court may not grant relief if it appears to be highly likely that the outcome for the claimant would not have been substantially different if the conduct complained of had not occurred, unless there are reasons of exceptional public interest which make it appropriate to proceed.
