Judicial Review & Public Law Barristers

Barristers in the group have extensive experience of dealing with Human Rights cases and the primary areas of law to which Public and Administrative issues can relate, for example housing, inquests, procurement, licensing, civil liberties, prison law, planning, immigration, regulatory, education, family, Court of Protection and vulnerable adults.

Judicial Review is an area that Trinity has focused on following the opening of the regional Administrative Courts, in particular in Leeds, to ensure a full provision of services to its client base in the North and beyond.

As well as acting on behalf of individuals and organisations, the Public and Administrative Law barristers also advise and represent Local Authorities, NHS Trusts, Police Authorities and other regulatory bodies in relation to Judicial Review and other administrative law proceedings. As such they have dealt with many aspects of the Human Rights Act. Several barristers are members of the Government Legal Department's panel of Counsel (formerly Treasury Solicitor's panel).

Members of the group and their clerking team recognise the need for speed and accurate early advice in managing complex and potentially costly Judicial Review cases and therefore adopt a pragmatic and realistic approach. Both the barristers and clerking team understand that swift action is necessary in certain circumstances and have experience of turning papers around on an urgent basis.

The Public and Administrative Law team regularly provide training events including seminars and workshops to solicitors and legal departments attracting CPD accreditation. Topics have included Judicial Review for Local Authorities, Judicial Review updates and Human Rights Act updates.
