Covering all of the substantive grounds on which a claim may be brought, this definitive new work provides unrivalled analysis and guidance on the law of judicial review.
Written by three experienced practitioners, Judicial Review: Principles and Procedure includes chapters on the most common grounds for bringing a claim, such as procedural fairness and irrationality, but also covers emerging grounds such as delay on the part of public bodies and error of fact. In addition, the authors provide a separate, detailed treatment of areas such as administrative policies and the public sector equality duty. Each element of this complex area of law is
carefully broken down to ensure that answers are always easy to find and, where the law is in doubt, the dispute is concisely stated and the view most likely to be preferred by the courts is expressed.
The book analyses in detail the issues that are likely to arise in practice, with thorough and up-to-date reference to case law throughout. It incorporates the jurisprudence arising out of the Human Rights Act 1998, providing practitioners with a complete yet practical treatment of each relevant topic. The book contains comprehensive coverage of procedural matters in each stage of a claim, from pre-action to costs, and includes a chapter on European Union law from Marie Demetriou QC of Brick
Court Chambers, providing a uniquely full treatment of all the issues which might be encountered in practice.
