This chapter considers the main ways in which disputes between individuals and public bodies are resolved outside the court system in what is widely referred to as the landscape of ‘administrative justice’. The Chapter explains the nature and importance of administrative justice, including the need to ensure good quality and just initial decision-making by public bodies; the challenges faced by those accessing the administrative justice ‘system’ to question initial decisions; and the two principal pillars of the administrative justice system tribunals and the use and role of public sector ombuds. It also contains a case study based on the Windrush scandal.
