An overview of the law of judicial review (JR) in the UK. This talk discusses JR by explanatory definition, the public law obligations of public authorities, limits to JR, remedies available, and practical/procedural considerations for claimants. Details of third-party interventions and the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 (UK), the European Convention of Human Rights and European Union law are also covered.
This talk was delivered at A4ID’s Training for Development Partners event, held 15-17 March 2011 in London. These training events are designed to provide an introduction to key areas of law for development organisations and their work. Each training seminar is tailored to the NGO context and includes presentations and case studies presented by leading lawyers, many of whom work for A4ID’s Legal Partners. Presentations are prepared for an audience without any prior legal knowledge or training.
Delivered by Andrew Denny, Angeline Welsh, both of Allen & Overy.
