Chapter 23 Judicial review of questions of law: a comparative perspective
Restricted access

Review for error of law is an endemic problem in all legal systems, and the standard through which courts review such errors is much debated in and across administrative law in different countries. This chapter considers the ways in which this issue is dealt with in the UK, USA, Canada and the European Union. It reveals the variety of legal tests deployed by the courts and the difficulties attendant thereon. There is discussion of the rationale for the adoption of a particular test within a particular legal regime, and the underlying values that affect choice in this regard.
