Product description


Reviews of previous editions:
A very useful guide that provides an overview of this difficult area of law as a primary guide for the student. Practitioners will also find it an invaluable first point of reference. The book is written in a clear and concise style [which] allows the reader to quickly establish the relevant principles … The book achieves its purpose of making administrative law understandable, accessible and interesting. … For those of us who work in this area of law, Michael Head’s book is an essential addition to the library.

CJ King, Victorian Bar News, Summer 2006

Head’s concise text … gives an up-to-date, honest, pithy and accurate account of administrative law in Australia today. … Nine chapters explain in thorough yet comprehensible detail the various areas of judicial review available to parties aggrieved by an administrative decision.
Sarah Keenan, (2006) 26 Qld Lawyer 268

This is a book which every person interested in current affairs will find of the greatest interest, whether lawyer, politician, journalist or inquisitive reader.
I cannot leave this review without complimenting Dr Head, on the depth of original and up to date discussion contained in the second edition, following so soon after the first.
BJM, Law Letter, Journal of Law Society of Tasmania, Spring 2008 - Issue 101

It is written in a clear and concise manner that makes it very readable. the facts of cases and other events are well explained, so that those who might lack a background understanding of cases or events will not be disadvantaged.
