DoJ publishes guide to judicial review proceedings: "The Judge Over Your Shoulder"

     A spokesman for the Department of Justice (DoJ) today (May 22) announced the publication of the latest edition of "The Judge Over Your Shoulder - A Guide to Judicial Review for Administrators" (JOYS) at the DoJ's website.

     "Since it was first published in 2010, JOYS has served to provide guidance to administrators in the Government on principles of judicial review which are relevant to their work as decision or policy makers. The purpose of the publication is to provide a better understanding of judicial review so as to maintain the highest standards of public administration in Hong Kong," the spokesman said.

     "The latest edition of JOYS is now available on the DoJ's website in English and Chinese versions. We hope that the guide, by providing an overview of the relevant law, will serve as a useful general reference for not only government officials, but anyone who wishes to understand more about judicial review, which is an integral part of the Hong Kong legal system," the spokesman continued.
