Vikram Sachdeva successfully resists challenge to non-eligibility of those without settled status for student loans, on behalf of the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills


CategoryNews Author Vikram Sachdeva QC Date

It was argued to be a breach of (1) Article 2 of the First Protocol of the European Convention on Human Rights, and (3) Article 14 when read with Article 2 of the First Protocol for those with Discretionary Leave to Remain not to be eligible for student loans to aid their university studies. On 31 July 2013 Mr. Justice Burnett held that there was no breach of A2P1, and any discrimination under Article 14 was justified.
