Challenging public authorities – using law to tackle everyday unfairness

Public authorities sometimes make decisions that feel like they are incorrect or unfair.

Judicial review is a legal process that can be used to challenge such decisions, but many people don’t know about judicial review or, if they do, may think it means having to going to court, when often it doesn’t. The aim of this event is to promote awareness of judicial review in our local communities by explaining how it works in practice, when it might be relevant and how to find the right kind legal help. We are also interested in any ideas that you may about what more could be done to make it more accessible.

A two-hour workshop to introduce and explain judicial review - Thursday 25 March, 1.30 - 3.30pm
