Funding Public Law: What it Costs and How to Pay for it

This paper considers how to get funding to bring public law cases, including

  • Disputes between citizens and public bodies (usually conducted in telephone conversations, letters and emails, and sometimes, face to face meetings)
  • ADR, eg mediation
  • Formal complaints about public bodies to the public bodies themselves and to Ombudsmen such as the Local Government Ombudsman, and the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman
  • Appeals to administrative tribunals
  • Proceedings before the civil courts, eg claims for judicial review and statutory appeals to the court.
