Administrative Court judicial review guide published

Guide prepared with all Court users in mind

On 25th July 2016 HM Courts & Tribunals Service published the Administrative Court judicial review guide.

The Guide provides a general explanation of the work and practice of the Administrative Court. It is designed to make it easier for parties to conduct judicial reviews in the Administrative Court, by drawing together into one place the relevant statutory provisions, rules of procedure, practice directions, and case law on procedural aspects of judicial review. It provides general guidance as to how litigation in the Administrative Court should be conducted in order to achieve the overriding objective of dealing with cases justly and at proportionate cost.

The Guide has been prepared with all Court users in mind, whether they are litigants in person or persons who have legal representation.

In the foreword to the guide, Sir Brian Leveson, President of the Queen's Bench Division, says:

"[This new guide to the Administrative Court] is an invaluable roadmap to the practice and procedure of the Court which will greatly assist all who are involved in proceedings before it. Good practice is identified and pitfalls foreshadowed. I have no doubt as to its utility."
