Cover of Judicial Review Proceedings: a practitioner's guide

Judicial Review Proceedings: a practitioner’s guide is a comprehensive yet accessible and practical introduction to the law, practice and procedure of judicial review.

It covers the substantive grounds on which a claim can be brought, deals with specific areas of law where the decisions of public authorities are commonly challenged and provides a practical step by step guide to running a claim including guidance on funding, pre-application procedure, the hearing and a new chapter on the jurisdiction of the Upper Tribunal.
