Show Summary Details


This chapter describes and analyses the general judicial approach to procedural fairness. It examines a number of issues: the tests developed by English law as to who is entitled to fair procedures; the extent to which abstract principles are translated into more detailed procedural rules; and the general judicial approach to exactly what procedural fairness requires and how those requirements are reconciled by the courts with competing considerations, especially costs.

Keywords: judicial approach; procedural fairness; fair procedures; procedural rules; costs; English law
