This new edition of Sir William Wade's and Dr Christopher Forsyth's classic account of administrative law contains much new material. Comprehensive and accessible, this book continues to have an immense impact of the development of the study and practice of administrative law. The book's clarity of exposition makes it accessible to the student approaching the subject for the first time but its scholarly content and perceptive insights make it useful to the judges of the highest courts. This new edition continues the trend towards a fuller account of European influences and, of course, it contains all the most recent cases and statutory changes to the law.
