Course Outline:

This CPD course will look at recent cases where the Tameside/Padfield ground or the existence of an alleged mistake of fact was relied on to justify an application for judicial review.  It also looks at the standards of review which courts have adopted in recent cases to scrutinise restrictions on rights.  The cases in question involve a broad spectrum of fact-situations and different decision-makers.  They concern town planning appeals with respect to height restrictions in outline zoning plans, disputes over admission to a self-governing professional body, a delisting decision by the Hong Kong Stock Exchange on grounds of prolonged suspension of trading, as well as challenges over the lawfulness of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department’s approval requirement concerning display of banners in public demonstrations, and of laws providing for public inspection of electors’ information and disqualification of election candidates, and more.
