Second-six pupil Alexa Thompson has had her note on Secretary of State for Work and Pensions v JA (2024) UKUT 52 (AAC) (UTJ Church) published in the popular housing blog Nearly Legal.

Alexa’s note, Universal Credit, transitional protection and temporary accommodationsummarises the context, details, and conclusion of the case, in which it was judged that Universal Credit claimants leaving supported or temporary accommodation have been unlawfully losing ‘transitional protection’ due to the discriminatory effect of the Universal Credit (Transitional Provisions) Regulations 2014.

GCN’s Tom Royston represented JA, instructed by Elliot Kent and Sophie Earnshaw from Shelter.
