The Importance of an Expansive Test of Standing

John Mcgarry

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (journal)


This article examines the Government’s proposal to reform the test of sufficient interest in judicial review cases. It argues: that the current, wide approach helps to ensure lawful, accountable government; that in some cases it may save judicial and other public resources; and that it might additionally mean that those affected by unlawful governmental action, but who do not have the means to bring a claim themselves, may still have their cases heard.
