There is a second appeals test in place which must be met in making the permission application in the Court of appeal, as the Court of Appeal will not give permission unless it considers that
(a) the appeal would
(i) have a real prospect of success; and
(ii) raise an important point of principle or practice; or
(b) there is some other compelling reason for the Court of Appeal to hear it.
The deadline to lodge permission applications to the Court of Appeal is 21 calendar days, from the date the decision is sent to the appellant. The Court of Appeal is quite strict in adherence to the deadline of 21 days and one has to give a good reason, in case of any delays.
The Upper Tribunal may issue a direction to make a shorter deadline or even give some extra time to lodge permission application to the Court of Appeal.
However the applicants cannot undertake following activities under this category:
One has to carefully consider and draft the grounds on which he may rely in his permission applications to the Court of Appeal. The main point here is to identify an error of law in the decision of the Upper Tribunal Judge who must have given a detailed and reasoned decision of the appeal. One has to see whether the decision makers have made fair decisions in the light of the relevant law, rules or regulations with reference to the decisions of the higher courts. It requires a wealth of expertise and experience to draft good grounds in such matters enhancing the chances of success.
The Court of Appeal will consider the grounds of permission to appeal carefully and may take one of the following actions:
Grant permission to Appeal to the Court of Appeal on all grounds
Grant permission to Appeal to the Court of Appeal on one or more grounds
Refuse permission to Appeal to the Court of Appeal
If the permission is refused then the appellant may then apply for an oral hearing for the permission application to appeal to the Court of Appeal.
If the permission is refused totally without merit, that is the end of the appeal process and no further appeal could be brought against that decision.
Once permissions is granted, the matter is listed for hearing at the Court of Appeal and we then prepare for the court hearing, which includes complying with the directions issued by the Court of Appeal, preparing bundle for the hearing and a brief for the counsel.
