Dr Anton Van Dellen(Barrister, Goldsmith Chambers)
Hamid hearings
(Hamid courts were established in 2012 when the court gave guidance regarding the consequences for solicitors’ firms and legal representatives of non-compliance with procedural requirements of Judicial Reviews. The court would not hesitate to issue a notice for solicitors to show cause at a Hamid hearing and refer persistent failure to follow the procedural requirements to the Solicitors Regulation Authority (“SRA”). The scope of Hamid courts have progressively expanded since then and particular expertise is needed to respond to a Hamid show cause letter.)
