Judicial Review

In order to argue a successful judicial review, a claimant needs to show that the public authority’s decision is either unlawful, irrational, or subject to procedural impropriety. So, if you think a public authority has made a decision that directly affects your rights as a private citizen, then a judicial review claim may be your avenue of legal redress.

Judicial Review

Judicial Review is an important safeguard to British democracy.
It gives an individual the chance to ask a Court to review a decision made by a public authority such as; a local council, a government department like the Home Office, a government agency like the police force or HMRC, or a regulatory body like Ofcom. This is not a full list of all the different types of public bodies that could be subject to a Judicial Review claim, and the important thing to bear in mind is the right to seek Judicial Review is quite a wide one. In essence the body that took the decision must be providing a public service.
