Kelly and Shiels, In the Matter of: CANI 15 Feb 2000

Appeal against refusal of judicial review of refusal to admit the applicants for study on a postgraduate legal professional course leading to potential admission as a solicitor. The applicants questioned: ‘the validity of the provision in the regulations made by the Law Society whereby an applicant for registration as a student of the Society must establish that he has been offered a place in the Institute. The case made by the appellants was that that provision was ultra vires the enabling legislation and void, and they sought a series of consequential remedies.’
