Emeritus Professor Carol Harlow QC is amongst the members of a independent panel appointed to consider potential reforms of the UK judicial review process. The panel will be chaired by Lord Edward Faulks QC, and will consider whether the right balance is being struck between the rights of citizens to challenge executive decisions and the need for effective and efficient government.
The Lord Chancellor, Robert Buckland QC MP, said:
"Judicial review will always be an essential part of our democratic constitution – protecting citizens from an overbearing state. This review will ensure this precious check on government power is maintained, while making sure the process is not abused or used to conduct politics by another means."
