New guidance has been made available for court users in England and Wales on conducting judicial reviews in the Administrative Court. The guidance provides general information on how litigation should be conducted, including the relevant statutory provisions, rules of procedure, practice directions and case law on the procedural aspects of judicial review, including those applicable to litigants in person.

The new guide has been prepared by the judge who heads the Administrative Court, Justice Supperstone, alongside Justice Lewis and Justice Whipple.

It has been designed with a view to making it easier for court users to conduct judicial reviews in the Administrative court and should be read in conjunction with the Civil Procedure Rules and supporting Practice Directions.

Content of the guidance

The guidance provides information on, among other things:

  • identifying who should be the parties in a claim for judicial review and what pre-action discussions should take place;

  • practical steps before issuing a claim form, including pre-action procedure and factors which make bringing a claim inappropriate;

  • procedure and practice for litigants in person;

  • vexatious litigant orders and civil restraint orders;

  • acknowledgment of service and what forms should be used;

  • permission to apply for judicial review and substantive hearings;

  • remedies which are available to a successful claimant, including when a party may request interim relief;

  • case management, including preparation of documents and case bundles.
