  • Provides answers to the most difficult legal issues involving judicial review.
  • Analyzes the subject's theoretical basis as well as its practise.
  • Provides detailed instructions on what to do at each stage of a judicial review process.
  • Explains the implications of recent case law and procedural changes.
  • Sets judicial review in the context of a rapidly evolving administrative justice system (including "proportionate conflict settlement," the new tribunal system, and ombudsman recourse).

  • Describes the concepts that underpin each type of judicial review.
  • Sets the stage for judicial review and its scope, addressing a variety of concerns that will govern De Smith's approach.
  • Considers the setting in which judicial review is just one of several potential channels of remedy for citizens who have been wronged.
  • Examines people who can file a judicial review suit (claimants), those who have a right to be a party (interested parties), and those who can ask the court for permission to make arguments (interveners).
  • Examines the frequently difficult and contentious issue of which defendants and rulings are amenable to judicial review.
  • Illegality, procedural fairness, and irrationality or unreasonableness are all covered in depth in this book (Substantive Review and Justification)
  • Procedures, remedies, funding, and expenditures are all covered in detail.
