Paper Abstract

A breach of human rights or the grounds of judicial review are both claims in public law but they remain separate forms of action in Victoria. In most other jurisdictions that have a bill or charter of rights, people can combine a judicial review case with a human rights claim. This paper will consider why that is not possible in Victoria. The paper will argue that the solution is to reform the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities 2006 (Vic) because reform to the common law principles of judicial review to incorporate breach of human rights as a ground of review will not happen in the near future.
