This book has been written for students undertaking legal studies at undergraduate level
and those pursuing similar courses which include constitutional and administrative law
as a core component (e.g. the Postgraduate Diploma in Law). It is based on over thirty
years’ experience of teaching the subject on A-level, undergraduate and postgraduate
courses. Particular attention has been paid to the views of students concerning the
strengths and weaknesses of pre-existing textbooks in this discipline....
Administrative law is an exciting topic, in particular for those with an interest
in how the law seeks to control the exercise of the enormous powers of the
modern state. In the development of the law generally, modern administrative
law is a recent, very largely post-Second World War, phenomenon. In legal education,
it has grown over the past 20 years from being a component within
established constitutional law courses to being a subject in its own right. Its
relationship with constitutional law, however, must not be forgotten....
Administrative law provides many of the safeguards which prevent government
becoming an intolerable evil. It is the purpose of this book to provide an
introduction to administrative law and its control of government power indicating,
wherever possible, the nature of those powers, the purpose of governmental
functions as well as the scope and effectiveness of legal control.
Constitutional and administrative law is one of the core subjects required for a
qualifying law degree and so is a compulsory part of undergraduate law
programmes and graduate diploma in law programmes. It is, however, very
different from many of the other core legal subjects because it concentrates
less on legal rules than on the operation of the system itself – in particular,
the operation of the state and the relationship between the state and the
The development of administrative law is a prominent feature of the Australian
legal landscape. The importance of this subject is highlighted by the fact that it is
stipulated as a ‘core’ subject in the syllabi of many, if not most, law schools. One
needs only to peruse the cases reported in the main law reports to appreciate its
significance as a large area of legal practice.
In this volume of essays, the contributors examine a number of fundamental
topics of practical and doctrinal importance.
THIS BOOK IS about the relationship between judicial and administrative
decision-making. Its aim is to set out a framework for
thinking about the extent to which judicial review litigation influences
administrative behaviour and is capable of securing compliance with
the requirements of administrative law (as expounded through judicial
review). This work has emerged from an empirical investigation of
routine local government decision-making (administering English
The phenomenon of judicialization is attracting increasing attention in socio-legal
studies. In a wide variety of countries and settings, courts and court-like processes
are playing an increasingly important role in politics and society. The causes of
this trend are complex, and not completely understood. Nor, we are quick to point
out, is the trend a universal one. Nevertheless, we believe the growing role of
courts is significant enough to warrant further examination.
The aim of this book is to analyse current problems in European administrative law,
many of which are reflected in the on-going reform process of the European
Treaties. The Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe has served as the point
of reference for this study.
In the last two decades, European Union (EU) administrative law has gone through
a process of extraordinary development and consolidation. It first developed as a
body of principles and rules aimed at governing, on the one hand, the action of the
EU public powers (such as the action of the Commission in the fields of State aids
and competition), on the other hand, the action of the national administrations
operating as decentralized EU agencies (e.g. the action of national public
administrations in the field of public procurement)....
Chapter 3 - Administrative law. After reading this chapter, you will be able to answer the following questions: What is administrative law? What is an administrative agency? What types of powers do administrative agencies have? How and why are administrative agencies created? What is the difference between an executive agency and an independent agency? What is the Administrative Procedures Act?...
The United Kingdom’s constitution, while of ancient origins, remains both
dynamic and vibrant. As every public lawyer is only too aware, nowadays,
the proper boundaries of constitutional and administrative law are both
increasingly wide and subject to debate. In compiling any textbook on this
subject, one of the principal preliminary tasks lies in defining the scope of
material to be included and the approach to be adopted in relation to that
The aims of this edition remain the same as those of previous editions: namely,
to explain and discuss critically the general principles of the constitutional
law and administrative law of the UK and to identify their historical and
political foundations. This edition has been recast and substantially rewritten
and expanded in order to take account of major changes in the law, notably
the burgeoning case law generated by the Human Rights Act 1998, and to
consider recent scholarship and political developments.
This book is intended to be of help to students studying constitutional and
administrative law who feel that they have acquired a body of knowledge, but do not
feel confident about using it effectively in exams. This book sets out to demonstrate
how to apply the knowledge to the question and how to structure the answer.
Students, especially first-year students, often find the technique of answering problem
questions particularly hard to grasp, so this book contains a large number of
answers to such questions....
The papers in this collection were presented at a conference held in
Saskatoon, Canada, on 17-19 October 1996 under the auspices of the College
of Law, University of Saskatchewan. There are many people and several institutions
to thank for making that conference, and this collection of essays,
The organisation of the conference was one of the pleasurable duties I
undertook in 1996 as the Law Foundation of Saskatchewan Visiting Professor
at the College of Law, University of Saskatchewan.

Centre of European Law at King’s College London for their generous

In writing this book we have kept in mind our aim of providing a concise
account of the main issues which presently characterise our system of
administrative justice. The book is intended as a text for undergraduates
taking a modular course in administrative law and indeed its origins lie in our
own experience of teaching and adapting such a course here at Sheffield.
Inevitably we owe a considerable debt to past and present colleagues whose
work has formed the basis of much of our thinking in this text.
Administrative legal systems are based on national constitutional legal traditions
and cultural values. English judges have for centuries applied the common law. In
Germany, judges have developed administrative legal principles for the protection
of the individual against state action. However, over the last few decades, administrative
legal systems have become less isolated.
Chapter 47 - Administrative law. The goals of this chapter are: Explain the role of enabling legislation and constitutional limitations in defining the legal authority of an administrative agency, list administrative agency powers, discuss the major legal bases for a judicial challenge to administrative agency actions.
