Policy work

PLP regularly submits responses to consultations and government policy proposals which fall within areas relevant to our core objective of monitoring and increasing the accessibility of public law remedies. Particular focuses within this area are judicial review procedure, ADR, and government legal aid policy. PLP’s policy and research work are closely entwined, with research often undertaken to develop policy reform proposals, and policy initiatives stimulating new areas of research.

You will find all our policy papers, consultation responses and briefings in our Resource Library in the section specifically for this work, here.
We alos have an historical overview of PLP's policy work, mostly pre 2012 and going back to 1991, here.

The citizenry of this country ought to appreciate better that [judicial review in the Administrative] Court... provides a means of obtaining speedy assistance if they think they are oppressed by authority or that they are failing to receive the assistance which parliament has required authorities to afford them."
