Administrative Law Facing the Future: Old Constraints and New Horizons is a stimulating collection of essays by a team of distinguished scholars and practitioners, introduced by the Hon. Mr Justice Stephen Sedley. The book has been constructed around the guiding themes of current debates and future developments in administrative law. The collection seeks to address many of the most topical aspects of this important area of law and includes chapters analysing: the implications of transformations in the British state and public administration; mechanisms for the control of delegated legislation; contemporary developments in ministerial accountability; comparative ombudsman remedies and dispute resolution procedures in the National Health Service. A
substantial part of the volume also concentrates on the nature and purpose of judicial review, with chapters discussing: the public/private law divide; the developing grounds of review; rules of standing; public law remedies; settling and the process of judicial review; civil liberties and the role of the courts and public interest immunity. The impact of the European Community and the use of the prerogative power in England and France are the focus of individual chapters.
Readership: This book will be of particular interest to students studying the subject at undergraduate or post-graduate level, as well as academics and practitioners working in the field.
