What is a Judicial Review?
Judicial Review is a kind of court case in which a member of the public challenges the lawfulness of decisions made by public authorities - usually local or central government - and a judge decides whether or not that decision was lawful.
If the claimant wins, then the decision can be declared unlawful or quashed.
The court does NOT consider whether a decision was a good or bad one, but whether it was lawful or not.
