Wildy's Book of the Month - December 2007

In both the extent of its coverage and its authority De Smith is the leading work on the history, principles and practice of judicial review.

Reflecting the steadily increasing importance and complexity of judicial review, this new edition incorporates recent fundamental developments in the area. It provides definitive guidance on the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998, the Administrative Court, reforms resulting from the Bowman Report, EU Community Law and the Civil Procedure Rules, alongside detailed discussion of case law and procedural developments.

  • Provides solutions to the most complex legal problems relating to judicial review
  • Analyses both the theoretical foundations of the subject and its practice
  • Supplies comprehensive guidance on what to do at every stage of an action for judicial review
  • Explains the impact of the latest case law and procedural developments
  • Deals thoroughly with emerging topics - for example, the expanding role of commercial judicial review and judicial review's increased use in areas such as education
