The Bar Council rejects the apparent suggestion from the Independent Review of Administrative Law (IRAL) that there is a conflict between judicial review and “proper and effective discharge of [government] functions”.

On the contrary, it submits that “judicial review is a critical mechanism” for securing that objective and that judicial review — and wide access to judicial review — assists in ensuring “effective” and “proper” discharge of government functions (reading “proper” here — as it should be read — as including “accountable” and “democratic”).  Dr Anton van Dellen is an elected member of the Bar Council.
