The Scottish application of judicial review procedure was introduced in 1985, some seven years after a similar but not identical procedure was introduced in England and Wales. An examination of the use made of the procedure since its introduction reveals some similarities but also differences between Scotland and England and Wales. This article examines possible reasons for the differences, and asks whether or not they matter, before concluding that there is a need for a more detailed study of judicial review in Scotland as the procedure enters its fourth decade.
