This work presents an empirical study of the influence of judicial review upon the (non-) compliance of administrative bodies with administrative law. Using the administration of English homelessness law as a case study, the book explores the social reality of bureaucratic decision-making and the place of law in the routine activities of local government decision-makers. In particular, it examines the influence of direct experiences of judicial review litigation upon the continuing practices of three local government offices. In light of sustained empirical enquiry, it critically examines the ability of judicial review to facilitate compliance with administrative law.
