On 18 March 2021, the Independent Review of Administrative Law published its report on reform to the judicial review process in which it made two substantive recommendations and a number of procedural recommendations. The Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice agreed with those recommendations and was “also interested in exploring proposals beyond these”. This was the basis upon which on the same day the Ministry of Justice published a consultation on judicial review reform.
Our Public Law team has published a blog discussing the recommendations made by the Independent Review and the terms of the consultation, which closes on 29 April 2021.
