This briefing note explains what judicial review is (and what it isn’t), how it works in practice and the main issues that voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations need to consider. 

Changes to Judicial Review: What was proposed, what was agreed and what the changes mean

Judicial review

Compact Voice have produced a short two page briefing on some of the changes that were proposed to the process of Judicial Review.

The briefing intends to be an easy-to-understand overview of what is an often complex legal area, but one which can have an impact on voluntary and community organisations - particularly those that campaign on the behalf of their service users.

Response: Judicial Review consultation


Compact Voice have submitted a response to the Ministry of Justice's consultation into proposed reforms to the Judicial Review process.

Why proposed changes to Judicial Review have us worried

On 6th September 2013, the Government opened up an eight week consultation on proposed reforms to the Judicial Review (JR) process. 
The Government sees the proposed reforms as a way of speeding up the process of bringing and resolving a claim, thereby reducing the burdens on the court system and public services. 
However, if the proposals are passed, there is a worry that these reforms could have a serious effect on the ability of the public and the judiciary to hold the Government to account.
