"The fifth edition of Textbook on Administrative Law has been comprehensively revised and updated to provide a concise and topical overview of this fast moving area of law." The guiding theme for this study is how accountability is achieved through a 'grievance chain' comprising Parliament, informal methods of dispute resolution, ombudsmen, tribunals and, particularly, by the courts with the increased prominence of judicial review. This edition remains as accessible as ever, fully explaining the core areas of the subject and setting them within a contextual framework. In addition to wide-spread recognition as an invaluable core text for LLB and CPE students, Leyland and Anthony is a stimulating introduction to administrative law for postgraduates and for non-law undergraduates with an interest in the field.
