Ampersand Bitesized – Public interest interventions in judicial review in Scotland: a rarely used but effective procedure

Dominic Scullion – 8th October 2020, 1pm

Dominic will discuss the recent decision of the Second Division in McCue v Glasgow City Council in which he submitted a written submission on behalf of the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman in a reclaiming motion which concerned the interplay between judicial review and complaints to the Ombudsman, and the laws of alternative remedy. The talk will cover public interest intervention procedure, and the things to weight up when considering whether to apply to intervene.

The talk will last 30 minutes, including a Q&A session.
