Public Law Week: Judicial Review – Pitfalls and the new Procedural Rigour

Cornerstone Barristers, 2-3 Gray’s Inn Square, London WC1R 5JH United Kingdom



“If all that needed […] was that the proposed ground was arguable, then procedural rigour would count for nothing. Having regard to the authorities, that must be wholly wrong.” So found Mr Justice Lane recently in an application to set aside an Order refusing permission to amend a claim for judicial review.

While judicial review has long been governed by rules, recent cases have suggested that those rules are being applied by the Courts with renewed vigour. This seminar will examine this ‘new’ procedural rigour and will cover a variety of topics including standing, time limits, costs, ‘rolling’ judicial review and the pre-action protocol.

This in-person training session forms part of Cornerstone Barristers Public Law Week (5-9 June) and will features leading barristers Peggy EtiebetRuchi Parekh and Jack Parker.

The event will be followed by a drinks reception.
