Administrative Law

The public and administrative law group at St John’s Chambers continues to receive instructions in judicial reviews.”

Legal 500  2017

Our Administrative Law team provide expert advice and specialist advocacy in all areas of this field, but primarily in such matters as are set out in the Public Administrative Law section of the website.

Our clients include both public authorities and those affected by the acts or omissions of public bodies, whether corporate and business clients or private individuals.

We cover all areas of Administrative Court work, including Judicial Review. We are also experienced in dealing with public law issues when they arise in private proceedings and where they impinge on commercial dealings, including public procurement.

For those practising in the South West, this is doubly important since the courts in Bristol have been able to hear Administrative Court cases since November 2012. This is an important advantage to all practitioners and their clients, and means that the delays and costs involved in going to London can now be avoided. We will be happy to explain how the new jurisdiction will work in practice.

All our team members can accept instructions direct from industry professionals under the Licensed Access scheme. This allows members of licensed organisations, such as the RICS, to instruct us without having to go through a solicitor.

Public Access

Some members of the team are also available to act, where appropriate, for members of the public, as well as commercial and non-commercial organisations, under the Public Access scheme. Read more.


The team delivers workshops and seminars in Chambers and regional centres. We also provide training on behalf of local Law Societies and in conjunction with firms of solicitors and also councils. We can also provide tailored in-house training for particular firms. If you would like any further information please contact Elizabeth Champion 0117 923 4712 or email: [email protected].
