The claim form

A claim for judicial review in the Administrative Court must be started by issuing the claim form in the prescribed form (see form N461 which has embedded guidance notes, including guidance on filing). For further reading on the claim form requirements, see CPR 54.6 and Practice Note: Judicial review—how to start proceedings. The claim form should be filed with the required accompanying documents and the applicable fee. If the fee is not paid and claim form is returned, it will not have been issued for the purpose of the time limit for bringing judicial review proceedings. See Practice Notes: Judicial review—time limits and the pre-action protocol and Judicial review time limits—extensions and urgent cases.

Certain fees for judicial review claims recently increased. The Civil Proceedings, First-tier Tribunal, Upper Tribunal and Employment Tribunals Fees (Amendment) Order 2016, SI 2016/807 came into force on 25 July 2016, bringing into effect court fee increases in civil proceedings, by amendment of the Civil Proceedings Fees Order 2008, SI 2008/1053. Among others, the fee for seeking permission to apply for judicial review increased to £154. For more information, see LNB News 26/05/2016 121 and Practice Note: Court fees in civil pro
