Judicial Review: Letter to The Sunday Times

19 October 2014

This letter appeared in The Sunday Times and was written jointly by Chairman of the Bar Council Nicholas Lavender QC, President of the Law Society Andrew Caplen, and President of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives Frances Edwards.

Its purpose is to persuade Peers to accept amendments to Part 4 of the Criminal Justice and Courts Bill tabled by Lord Pannick, Lord Woolf, Lord Carlile and Lord Beecham in order to retain judicial discretion and reduce restrictions imposed, by the Bill, on judicial review.
