Judicial Review / Public Law
What is public law?
Public bodies must not exceed their legal powers and must comply with their stated duties. Simply put, public law is concerned with the relationship between the government (public bodies) and individuals including companies and other organisations.

What is judicial review?
Judicial review is a process where the lawfulness of a decision or action made by a public body is questioned. A judicial review can confirm that the proper procedures have been followed in any decision or action, and that the law has been interpreted and applied correctly or alternatively confirm that it has not.


Stuart Jessop
Barrister

My name is Stuart Jessop and I am an experienced barrister who is a member of the prestigious London Chambers, 6 Pump Court.

Companies and members of the public can instruct a direct access barrister directly without the need for a solicitor but I, unlike most public access barristers, can conduct litigation in a similar manner to a solicitor as well as acting as your barrister, giving advice and representing you in court, which means that you won't be passed around various people in a large law firm.

I can offer a personal service tailored to your needs, whilst being supported by a wealth of resources and expertise as a member of the prestigious London Chambers, 6 Pump Court. Contact me today on 07771 541449.
