Abstract

This short article in the Law Society Journal argues that the High Court's decision in Kirk v Industrial Court of NSW (2010) 239 CLR 531 allows the High Court and the State Supreme Courts to exercise a judicial review jurisdiction in respect of exercises of public power by non-government entities, and thus effectively adopts the English Datafin principle.

Keywords: Judicial review, Datafin principle, outsourcing, public power, Supreme Court, Kirk
