CategoryWebinars Archive Author Andrew Deakin, Steve Broach , Tom Tabori, Nicola Kohn, Rosie Eleanor Scott, Rachel Sullivan Date

Brought to you by Public Law Project (PLP), and presented in partnership with 39 Essex Chambers and DLA Piper, this is a complete course, run in short (1hour +) accessible sessions over 4 days (15 – 18 March) to provide lawyers and advisers, policy people and decision makers with an understanding of bringing and defending judicial review claims.

The course is also relevant to those working in campaigning organisations with a legal strategy and those representing and advising marginalised groups in society.

The course includes:

  • Judicial review: who it affects and what remedies can be offered
  • what can be challenged and by who
  • Differences between cases based on the Human Rights Act and other grounds
  • Claims by pressure and public interest groups
  • Third-party interventions and CCOs
  • Steps in a judicial review claim
  • Funding and costs
  • Public law quiz!

Plus a fully supervised case study at the end of the day, to help delegates revise and put to use practical  learning from the course.
