Judicial Review: Tactics for Winning, Recent Developments and “Abuse of Power”

April 19, 2017

Six Pump Court presents the first in our series of environmental and public law seminars to be held this year:

Judicial Review: Tactics for Winning, Recent Developments and “Abuse of Power”

This seminar will examine the effect of legislative changes to judicial review procedures effected in recent years. It will also look at what is meant by an “abuse of power” as a ground in its own right, and explore the overlap between this basis of challenge and other procedural and substantive grounds of review, including the contemporary scope of legitimate expectation. The aim of the seminar is to provide practical assistance in bringing and defending judicial review claims, especially, but not only, in the planning and environmental areas.

Further detail on the content of the seminar is provided below and in the attached flyer
