Despite being a vital part of the public law system, and the key way in which the court can challenge unlawful decisions made by bodies that exercise a public law function, for those that specialise in judicial review matters, sourcing targeted public law training courses can be difficult.
To address this need, Datalaw now offer a small collection of judicial review courses, which are delivered by Datalaw favourite, solicitor-advocate Dean Kingham. Described as a ‘tenacious lawyer’ who is ‘very dedicated to his clients and always looking to push the envelope’ (Legal 500 (2017)), Dean is head of the prison, crime and public law department at Swain Solicitors making him ideally placed to deliver our public law training.
Ideal for those new to public law, or those looking to refine their tactics when undertaking judicial review cases, the titleDuty of Candour and FOI Requests Before the JR is Pleaded will examine the crucial source of information which Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests present and the way in which the FOIA can be utilised as a part of judicial review pre-action. This judicial review course will also provide advice on how viewers can frame questions to obtain the information they require and how timing is everything when making an application to the public authority.
Addressing the question when precisely it is possible or appropriate to attach claims for damages or restitution on a public law judicial review case, the bite-size public law course Damages And Judicial Review will encourage viewers to think flexibly on how best to argue for damages in judicial review cases and will impart guidance on how to do this effectively in practice. Consideration will also be given to the grounds for judicial review, statutory principles and recent public law cases, making it invaluable for experienced and newly qualified practitioners alike.
Equally useful, the judicial review course Practical and Real Differences in Proportionality will ensure viewers have a greater understanding of proportionality in the context of European law, common law and the Human Rights Act and feel confident when handling such cases in practice. Accessible for a period of 12-months using any internet connected device, the courses within this area are perfect for those seeking to complete public law courses via distance learning.
