    Relief and remedies

    How far can you push the Court on relief and remedies, given the recent reforms to JR, and the ramifications of decisions such as Imam v Croydon (2023) in the Supreme Court?

    Where is the line between (1) consultation and (2) informal engagement in JR claims following the spate of recent cases, and how do you turn the argument in your client's favour?

    Answered by James Maurici KC of Landmark Chambers

    James is "one of the top JR silks at the Bar - bringing a really clear insight into how cases are won and lost." He defended five JRs over the proposed new runway at Heathrow.

    To what extent does PSED compliance engage civil rights and obligations in the way that substantive discrimination does for Article 6 ECHR, and what is the impact on challenges?

    Answered by Tim Buley KC of Landmark Chambers
