Why is timing an important factor in judicial reviewWatch
I'm researching judicial review but I'm struggling to find reasons why delay is an important factor. I know the law changed from common to statute but could someone please help me to understand why?
Are you sure you havent got the wrong end of the stick and delay is to be avoided or you at least make sure you hit all procedural deadlines and dont leave things too late?
Yes, sorry. That's what I meant. Why is being past the deadline so bad? And why is it so important to be within the deadline? Basically my question is what difference does the time scale make?
Sorry I am not aux fait with JR and dont feel the need to learn.
As you are the one who is studying it then it might mean delay by the government and the impact that has on proceedings as in too slow to respond, meaning they are too late by the time of the review because someone could have been deported or events could have happened that are irreversible?
It could also mean delay as in missing deadlines which means you could lose your right to review.
Once you understand which sort of delay it is then you can read a few of the solicitors and chambers articles which talk about delay and explain its impact. Not an adequate replacement for real timely research, but will get you some case names and explanations. Also your textbook and library research.
