Judicial Review is a systematic treatment of the remedy of judicial review in Scotland. While always available in the Court of Session in Scotland, judicial review's growth in recent years has led to greater attention being paid to its legal and constitutional significance. This book provides a definitive statement of the current law on the scope and grounds of judicial review and places it in its historical and constitutional context.
