What is Judicial Review? | Kangs Judicial Review Solicitors


Daily, thousands of decisions are made by Public Bodies and, sometimes, these decisions are wrong and unfair.

Such decisions, in many cases, not only affect individuals but also companies and officers of companies.

Judicial Review (‘JR’) is a vital part of the English legal system as we do not a have a fully written constitution like many other countries.

JR is the procedure by which decisions made by a Public Body, Court or Tribunal can be challenged to ensure that the decisions being made are fair and lawful.

JR can also be applied for in cases where Public Bodies fail to follow procedures or fail to act appropriately.

To apply for JR you must have a sufficient interest in the matter.

Under what Grounds can I make an Application for Judicial Review? | Judicial Review Specialists

There are various grounds on which decisions could be challenged including:

  1. The Public Body acted outside of its powers, the law has been misinterpreted or there was an error on fact;
  2. The Public Body acted unreasonably when making a decision i.e no normal person would have made the same decision;
  3. Procedural impropriety. The Public Body failed to adopt or it ignored procedural requirements.
