A new blog by PLP’s Deputy Legal Director Sara Lomri explains why access to judicial review is for most people now a distant reality and why the latest costs consultation suggests that the Government is ignoring the financial obstacles that prevent people from challenging unlawful decision-making.

She writes: “Judicial review plays a vital role in preventing the abuse of power, but meaningful access to the courts and judicial review are essential to ensuring that public bodies obey the law.”
