Administrative Law explains the constitutional principles of the subject and brings clarity to this complex field of public law. The common law courts, government agencies, and Parliament have developed a wide variety of techniques for controlling the enormously diverse activities of twenty-first century government. Underlying all that variety is a set of constitutional principles. This book uses the law of judicial review toidentify and to explain these principles, and then shows how they ought to be worked out in the private law of tort and contract, in the new Tribunals Service, and in non-judicial techniques such as investigations by ombudsmen, auditors, and other government agencies. The aim is to equip the readerto apply the constitutional principles to the problems of administrative law. The author uses a range of learning features to make complex points accessible. Chapters start with a "look for" section which outlines the key ideas in each chapter, then "from the mists of time" boxes and pop quizzes appear throughout, and each chapter is wrapped up with a "take home message",critical questions, and a list of further reading.Online Resource Centre:Administrative Law is accompanied by an extensive Online Resource Centre, which provides a unique resource for the subject. Features include: * Notes on key cases* Links to reports of important judgments, legislation, and other resources* Suggestions for answering the questions in the text* Updates to the law* A guide to the literature of administrative law* An online glossary* A guide for teachers
Timothy Enidcott is Fellow in Law at Balliol College, and Dean of the Faculty of Law, University of Oxford.
