*R (on the application of Tigere) v Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills (Just for Kids Law intervening)

Education – Higher education. The issue for determination was whether the ordinary residence criterion or the settlement criterion for student loans unjustifiably discriminated, under art 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights, or breached the right to education, under art 2 of the First Protocol to the Convention. The Supreme Court held that the settlement criterion could not be justified, but there had been ample justification for the ordinary residence criterion.
