The Dynamics of Judicial Review Litigation

The Dynamics of Judicial Review Litigation

The resolution of public law challenges before final hearing

Given its place in the UK’s constitutional system, an empirically based understanding of the way the judicial review procedure operates is of the utmost importance to users of the system and policymakers. This project offers the first analysis of the process since the post-Bowman reforms were introduced in October 2003, and does so at a time when potentially major changes are taking place to the system in the form of regionalisation and the anticipated transfer of certain cases from the Administrative Court to the Upper Tier Tribunals.
