Administrative / biographical background:
The work of the Administrative Court is varied, consisting of the administrative law jurisdiction of England and Wales as well as a supervisory jurisdiction over inferior courts and tribunals, exercised in the main through the procedure of Judicial Review, which covers persons or bodies exercising a public law function. Examples of the types of decision which may fall within the range of Judicial Review include certain decisions of local authorities, certain decisions of the immigration authorities and Immigration Appellate Authority, decisions of regulatory bodies, and decisions relating to prisoner's rights. The work is divided between single Judge courts and Divisional Courts (which consist of at least two judges and normally consist of a Lord Justice of Appeal sitting with a judge of the High Court).
