Abstract

This chapter presents an historic survey of developments in the High Court’s jurisprudence concerning standing to sue as an inhibition on deserving claims involving constitutional challenges. It concludes that although standing currently does not present a substantial barrier to access to a constitutional court in a proper case it is still not based on any convincing and coherent basis in principle; rather it is largely a matter of pragmatism and, arguably, discretion.
