Judicial Review: Mishcon de Reya Consultation Response

Posted on 30 April 2021

We have recently responded to the Government's consultation on its proposals for statutory reform of  judicial review. Please see our response here

The Government's consultation follows the publication of the Independent Review of Administrative Law ("IRAL") panel's report on judicial review. We contributed to the IRAL panel's call for evidence, providing extensive data analysis in support of our submission. Our view is that the current process is materially fit for purpose. The IRAL panel concurred and made relatively modest recommendations for reform.

Having considered the IRAL panel's recommendations the Government launched a consultation on a broad set of proposals. The Lord Chancellor explained that the IRAL panel's recommendations were the "starting point for rebalancing our system" but that the "Government would like to go further to protect the judiciary from unwanted political entanglements and restore trust in the judicial review process.
