Consultation response - Independent Review of Administrative Law (October 2020)

 

 

 

 

The Independent Review of Administrative Law was launched in July 2020. A call for evidence ran from 7 September 2020 to 26 October 2020. 

The PILS Project submitted a consultation response as part of that call; a response that focused primarily on the issue of costs as a barrier to accessing justice.

Based on the PILS Project's 11 years of experience supporting public interest litigation in Northern Ireland, it is our firm view that an individual’s ability to engage in judicial review proceedings is a fundamental safeguard necessary to ensure adherence to the rule of law and protect human rights and equality.
