  • 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.
  • Sets judicial review in the context of the fast-changing administrative justice system (including “proportionate dispute resolution”, the new tribunal system, recourse to ombudsmen).
  • Draws on relevant experience from other Commonwealth jurisdictions, especially Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand and South Africa.

      • Deals comprehensively with all grounds of challenge, including illegality, procedural impropriety, substantive review, Convention rights and European Community grounds.
      • Clarifies complex changes in substantive review, including proportionality and legitimate expectations, against a background of a developing “culture of justification”.
      • Sets out the principles underlying each area of judicial review
      • Sets out the context of judicial review and its scope, considering at the outset a number of issues which guide De Smith’s approach
      • Considers the context in which judicial review is but one of a number of possible avenues of redress for aggrieved citizens
      • Examines those who may initiate a claim for judicial review (claimants); who have a right to be a party (interested parties) and those who may seek permission from the court to make submissions as interveners.
      • Considers the often complex and controversial questions of which defendants and decisions are subject to judicial review
      • Deals comprehensively with the grounds of review in the following categories: illegality, lack of procedural fairness and irrationality or unreasonableness (Substantive Review and Justification)
