A collection of cases illustrating the application of administrative law.

The collection of cases presented in this book has been curated to work in close conjunction with Principles of Administrative Law. The cases are designed to strengthen readers’ understanding of the core concepts and principles of judicial review, as well as those which apply to merits review undertaken by administrative tribunals. The case extracts are sufficiently lengthy to enable readers to appreciate how the application of general principles in administrative law is adjusted in specific contexts.

This volume also includes reading questions to prompt a critical and reflective approach to the case law, as well as suggested additional readings to supplement Principles of Administrative Law on those crucial aspects of administrative law which lie beyond judicial review and merits review.
