Plain English definition
Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Jargon Buster

A type of court case in which a judge looks at whether a decision made by a public body such as a local council has been made in the right way, and whether they had the right to make it. It does not rule on whether the right decision has been made, but whether the right process has been followed. You can talk to a solicitor about applying for judicial review if you believe that an organisation has not followed the law in making a decision about something that affects you.
