- natural justice
in the constitutional law of the UK, used to mean no more than that a decision should be adjudicated by an impartial judge – 'one with no interest in the outcome' – nemo judex in suo causa: see Dimes v . Grand Canal (1852) 3 HLC 759. The other guiding principle is that a decision should not be taken without 'all parties being heard' – audi alteram parem: see Ridge v. Baldwin  AC 40. See also judicial review.
