About Administrative Justice in Context

This book comprises a definitive collection of papers on administrative justice, written by a set of very distinguished contributors. It is divided into five parts, each of which contains articles on a particular aspect of administrative justice. The first part deals with the impact of 'contextual changes' on administrative justice and considers the implications of changes in governance and public administration, management and service delivery, information technology, audit and accounting, and human rights for administrative justice. The second part deals with conceptual issues and describes a number of competing approaches to the administrative justice. The third part deals with the application of administrative justice principles to private law disputes while the fourth part deals with the distinctive characteristics of administrative justice in three other jurisdictions. The final part deals with current developments in administrative justice and the book concludes with a discussion of legislative and policy developments in the UK.
The general approach of the book is socio-legal and interdisciplinary. The chapters adopt a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including those derived from political science, public policy, social policy, accounting and information technology as well as from law. Although most of the contributors are academics, some are practitioners. For these reasons, the book should be of interest to lawyers, particularly those with interests in administrative law, and to social scientists, particularly those with interests in public administration, public policy and public management.

Reviews

“..a timely contribution to the public law literature...

..if the purpose of academic writing is to provoke though and inspire new ways of looking at a subject, the book is an undoubted success. Within its chapters, which range from 'deep' theory to a root-and-branch critique of existing administrative justice arrangements, there is enough academic food for thought to keep scholars busy for years to come.

Although inevitably many readers will dip in and out of the book according to their interests, the book also works read cover to cover. Connections are made with wider themes of governance, theory is explored in some depth, comparative studies and current debates are used to add contemporary insight to the book, and the overall system of redress mechanisms is appraised.

... the coverage is impressive and the reader is left with a clearer and more comprehensive understanding of the subject.

The book ... will set the benchmark for works within its field for many years to come.

...the themes and ideas identified in this book remain vital to a full comprehension of administrative justice.

...it is a superb compilation of essays and full of ideas that challenge our way of thinking about the subject. Moreover, it contains significant proposals for reform which deserve further scrutiny. Tribute should be paid to Professor Adler for bringing together and being bold enough to invite such a diverse collection of authors. The book will be essential reading for many years to come and I would recommend it to all scholars and students of public law...
