    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.

    A Year in Judicial Review 2013

    November 8 2013 | Conference papers | By Nathalie Lieven QC

    There are by now so many JR cases, which cover such a broad range of topics that a talk such as this is necessarily nothing more than a personal choice, and cannot hope to be comprehensive. What is set out below is merely a few cases from 2013 which may be of general interest. There will be many others which are relevant to your particular cases and practices.

    Judicial Review: A Healthcheck

    October 25 2013 | Audio files | By Mike Fordham QC

    Mike gives JR a healthcheck - looking at the body and brain of judicial review in an extended somatic metaphor. Note that the main auditorium of Herbert Smith Freehills has two very large striking blue portraits (approximately 8ft tall) of screaming faces, painted in harsh, disturbing blue. These are the pictures he refers to in the address.

    Ombudsman v JR

    July 17 2013 | Conference papers | By Sarah Clarke

    With legal aid for JR under threat, practitioners may want to consider alternatives. Ombudsman decisions themselves are amenable to JR. Representations to the Ombudsman are free, claimants don’t need a lawyer - and in a landscape in which the government appears only to be prepared to fund legal advice for itself, that’s of increasing significance.
    Although there are some disadvantages to using the Ombudsman, there are also advantages, both are considered in this paper.
