This chapter focuses on prerogative remedies. It first discusses the remedies of habeas corpus (together with its human rights counterpart), certiorari (the quashing order), and prohibition (the prohibiting order). These are grouped together since they are all remedies for the control of powers. Mandamus (the mandatory order) then follows, being the primary remedy for enforcing public duties.
