Judicial Review (JR) is the process by which the High Court examines the decisions of public bodies and considers whether they are lawful.
The decisions, acts, and failures to act by public bodies exercising public functions are all potentially challengeable by JR.
The grounds for JR are illegality, irrationality and procedural impropriety.
JR can be an expensive and time-consuming process; it is often the last mechanism people have for checking that public bodies are acting lawfully in the decisions they make or policies they implement. It is therefore crucial for upholding the rule of law.
