    Guide to Strategic Litigation

    January 13 2014 | Guides | By The Public Law Project

    This guide has been produced to provide individuals and community groups with information to promote a better understanding of how to challenge decisions of public bodies. It is intended for non-lawyers, for community and voluntary sector groups and for individuals. It is not intended for litigants in person (ie those who go to court without a lawyer to assist them), and in no way replaces the need for expert legal advice. Instead, it is designed to help non-lawyers understand the judicial review process, to navigate their way through it, and to get the best out of the lawyers they will undoubtedly need.
