Types of cases
Challenges to the decision making processes of administrative bodies and lower courts.
An application for leave to apply for judicial review is the first stage of judicial review and is made ex parte on a Monday (as per the General Notice of 2 December 2019) Where an order is made granting the applicant leave to apply for judicial review, an originating Notice of Motion must be filed in the Central Office. After the first return date in the Judicial Review list, the Motion may be listed from time to time for directions until it is ready for hearing. A hearing date will be then allocated.
All cases listed for hearing on Tuesday to Friday each week are called over at 10.00 a.m. on the Thursday of the preceding week to confirm the case is going ahead. The hearing date is vacated if there is no attendance at the Thursday callover.
The rules governing Judicial Review are contained in Order 84 of the Rules of the Superior Courts
