Cambridge Associates in Management v Ofsted

09 May 2013

Monckton Chambers’ Ben Lask has successfully defended Ofsted in a claim for judicial review against a decision to take regulatory action against a childcare provider.

The claim raised issues as to the ambit of an expert regulator’s discretion, procedural fairness, and the circumstances in which regulatory action might engage a provider’s rights under Article 1, Protocol 1 of the European Convention on Human Rights (the right to peaceful enjoyment of property).

The High Court upheld Ofsted’s decisions in this case and dismissed the claim.
