Re: Judicial Review

Thanks David I will call the advice line. It would be useful to speak to someone as it will no doubt help me put my thoughts into some sort of order. Like you say it would also be useful to get tips from others who have had to represent themselves before.

I also think Help raises some very valid points re what is and is not often considered relevant as is the language we use when interacting. Wou...
