R (on the application of Akande) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Leave to remain. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's refusal of his application for leave to remain in the United Kingdom to Tier 4 (General) student. The Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber), in dismissing the application, held that the Secretary of State had correctly notified the claimant that he had no right of appeal, as his leave had expired on the date he had made his application. Further, the Secretary of State had made a rational and lawful decision to refuse the claimant's claim to remain in the UK, under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
