Just to clarify - you submitted your application, this was rejected, you appealed and were unsuccessful but have applied for judicial review. This is now pending.
Is the above correct?
If the application for judicial review is still outstanding then you will not be able to work until determination of the application has been reached. You cannot rely on your previous visa in order to work for this purpose.
Once the JR application has been determined upon and you received your RC (if you do) then you will be able to work from the date you receiver the vignetter (ie. the sticker) in your passport.
If you are unsuccessful in your JR application and do not receive your RC then you will have to check to make sure that following this they have not curtailed your student visa. If they have not curtailed your student visa then you can rely on this provided you are still complying with the conditions of the visa (ie. by being a student) and use this to work the amount of hours you are permitted to in accordance with the student visa.
