Fieldfisher hosts seminar entitled ‘The Importance of Reasons – Minimising Challenges to Decisions’

October 1, 2019

Our most recent Planning and Environmental seminar took place on the 30th September in the Merrion Hotel which was tailored towards public bodies involved in decision making that can be the subject of judicial review.

The discussion was chaired by Zoe Richardson (Partner, Fieldfisher) and speakers consisted of Nuala Butler, S.C. and Barry Magee (Associate, Fieldfisher).

Nuala Butler S.C. gave an overview of how the courts have developed the law relating to the duty to give reasons as well as the adequacy of those reasons.

Barry Magee spoke about practical steps that decision makers and organisations can take to minimise the risk of decisions being challenged in the courts.

Our Planning and Environmental/Public and Regulatory Department regularly publishes articles on developments in this area, all of which can be accessed through our blog.
