Judicial review is a procedure by which the decisions of public bodies such as government ministers and departments, industry regulators and local authorities can be challenged through the courts.
Who can apply for judicial review?
A party must have sufficient interest in the decision they wish to challenge in order to apply for judicial review. Relevant factors in demonstrating sufficient interest include the strength and importance of the grounds of challenge, the relevance of the decision to the applicant and whether there is an alternative remedy.
When should an application for judicial review be made?
An application for a decision to be judicially reviewed must be filed promptly and, in any event, within three months of the date on which the grounds for bringing the application first arose.
