Description

The aim of Focus: Administrative Law is to simplify this complex area of law by highlighting the principles, practices and institutions that provide mechanisms for the supervision, regulation and structuring of the exercise of the executive power of the government.

 

The text focuses on Commonwealth law, but reference is made to State and Territory law where it is significantly different. The book highlights the core areas of administrative law, merits and judicial review. It also examines how people can gain access to government information and discusses the organisational and political controls over administrative behaviour.

 

Sample problems and suggested answers at the end of chapters are designed to test knowledge by reference to hypothetical scenarios calling for legal analysis.

 

Features

     •     chapter objectives
     •     flowcharts, tables and diagrams
     •     sample problem with suggested resolution for each chapter
     •     further tutorial discussion questions
     •     suggested further reading
