Judicial Review

Briefings and Reports

Posted on 01 Oct 2020

No one should be above the law, especially those in power.

The UK has a system of checks and balances to ensure we can seek justice when we’ve been failed by public bodies. This system also ensures whichever party is in government, their actions remain within the law and don’t infringe upon our fundamental rights.

One way is through a type of legal challenge known as ‘judicial review’. Politicians are currently trying to limit our access to judicial review and in doing so put the Government and public bodies beyond the reach of the law.
