Bangor Law School's research into the work of the Administrative Court
and the regional market for
legal services in public law has challenged the orthodox view that public
law is the preserve of
London. It has; 1. Provided evidence that regional Administrative Courts
are at least equal to the
Royal Courts of Justice in terms of their service to users. 2. Influenced
the National Assembly for
Wales in assessing the case for establishing a separate legal
jurisdiction. 3. Influenced solicitors'
instruction patterns in the English regions and Wales, leading to the
direction of more work to
regional courts and more local solicitors instructing local counsel. 4.
Informed national debate
about the constitutional role of judicial review. 5. Influenced the
Administrative Court/ Public Law
Project in developing training opportunities outside London.
