Description
Wade and Forsyth's Administrative Law has been a cornerstone text since publication of the first edition in 1961. It provides a comprehensive and perceptive account of the principles of judicial review and the administrative arrangements of the United Kingdom. For over fifty years, Administrative Law has been trusted by students in the UK and abroad and is extensively cited by courts throughout the common law world. The book's clarity of exposition makes it accessible to the student approaching the subject for the first time, whilst its breadth of coverage and perceptive insight ensure its value to all interested in this field, academics and practitioners alike.
Key new cases and developments covered in this edition include:
*    The decisions of the Supreme Court on many crucial administrative law questions
       including jurisdiction and the limits of judicial review, the malleable boundary
       between law and fact, and the proper approach to substantive review.
*    Details of relevant statutory changes such as those made in the Equality Act 2010;
       the Location Act 2011; the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders
       Act 2012; the Scotland Act 2012; the Justice and Security Act 2013; the Crime and
       Courts Act 2013; the European Union Act 2011; and many others.
*    Coverage of the changes proposed by the Lord Chancellor to the procedure of judicial
       review as set out in his consultation papers 'Judicial Review: Proposals for Reform'
       (2012) and 'Judicial Review: Proposals for Further Reform' (2013).
