Zoe Gannon appeared for the Claimant, the London School of Science and Technology, in the successful first judicial review challenge to a malpractice decision made by Pearson Education Limited (“Pearson”). The case concerned a challenge to the procedure and the sanctions imposed against both the Centre and the Head of Centre by Pearson. The Court upheld the challenge to the procedure and the sanctions against the Head of Centre, but rejected the challenge to the malpractice finding against the Centre itself. The case also confirms that an employer may have standing to bring judicial review on behalf of an employee.
The judgment is here.
