Guidance issued on renewal applications to the UT

The case of KM (Bangladesh) v SSHD [[2017] EWCA Civ 437]( (21 June 2017) raises an interesting, if niche, procedural point. The case is relevant to parties who

  • have had an appeal dismissed by the Upper Tribunal (UT);
  • who wish to challenge the findings of the UT on a point of law; but
  • who miss the deadline to make the application for permission to  appeal against the determination to the Court of Appeal so that the application is not admitted; and
  • wish to renew their applications directly to the Court of Appeal

We consider in Free Movement the guidance given by the Court of Appeal on how and in what circumstances it will consider renewed applications for permission to appeal where deadlines in the tribunal have been missed.
