Melanie Carter, Partner and Head of Public & Regulatory, and Claire Whittle, Senior Associate, have written for the Law Society Gazette on a recent ruling by the Supreme Court focusing on the concepts of equal treatment and unfairness in judicial reviews.

Throughout an in-depth article for the Law Society Gazette’s 2 July issue, Melanie and Claire touch on the factual background to this judgment, the decision itself and the broader implications which arise from this ruling.

The judgment held that these are not standalone principles of administrative law but aspects of rationality. As explained by the authors this means that cases should be “uniformly treated unless there is a valid reason to treat them differently”.
