Judicial review is a court proceeding in which a judge reviews the lawfulness of a decision made by a public body. In the case of military personnel, this could be challenging a decision made by the Ministry of Defence, disputing a Coroner’s verdict or challenging the actions of other organisations within the Armed Forces.
Hodge Jones & Allen has a long-standing and successful record of challenging decisions taken by public bodies, which affect military personnel. We passionately believe that military authorities should be held to account when they fail our servicemen and women in the forces.
Our specialist expertise means we can persuade the authorities to reconsider their decisions or change course, before cases reach court. However, we have fought and won judicial reviews which have been vigorously defended by the Ministry of Defence and other bodies.
