I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hello.  Yes you can make a claim for judicial review of a decision as a litigant in person or, if it is for someone else, they call it a McKenzie friend (essentially a friend speaks).  The process is quite complex and as you know has not very long deadlines but there is nothing preventing you from making the claim.  I trust that this has been of assistance and wish you well with your claim.
