Article in the Swedish Bar Association journal

In the latest edition of the Swedish Bar Association journal Advokaten, Milad Samadi, an associate at WERKS, has published the article “Ombud och muntlig förhandling i förvaltningsrätten” (“Legal representation and oral hearing in the Administrative Court”), which summarizes his master thesis from the University of Gothenburg.

The study was conducted through an empirical examination of over 6 000 administrative court rulings that have been examined based on approvals, the form of procedure and on the presence of legal representation. The study shows that an appellant is twice as likely to succeed where an oral hearing is held, compared to a wholly written procedure, and the same increase in success rate could be observed when the appellant was represented by legal counsel compared to cases where the appellants argued their cases themselves.
