Wildy's Book of the Month - July 2009

Wade & Forsyth's Administrative Law provides a comprehensive and perceptive account of the principles of judicial review and a sketch of the administrative arrangements of the United Kingdom. Since publication of the first edition in 1961, Administrative Law has established itself amongst the foremost rank of legal textbooks, and is frequently cited with approval in the higher courts.

In the tenth edition, Christopher Forsyth has brought this classic account of administrative law fully up to date in light of recent case law and legislation, especially regarding the continuing transformation of this branch of the law by the Human Rights Act 1998.

The book's clarity of exposition makes it accessible to the student approaching the subject for the first time, whilst its breadth of coverage and perceptive insight ensure its value to all interested in this field, academics and practitioners alike.

New to this edition

  • Fully updated to cover all relevant developments since publication of the last edition, to ensure the book remains a thoroughly contemporary and reliable resource
  • There are new sections detailing the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 on administrative law. Topics covered include the extent to which the Act applies when private bodies perform functions for public bodies, the emergence of the 'structured proportionality' test and the principles governing the award of damages for breach of human rights
  • All new developments in classical administrative law are also covered including discussion of the doctrine of material error of fact as a ground of judicial review, and the latest developments in the doctrine of legitimate expectations
  • The latest developments in the procedural law that underpins every application for judicial review are fully discussed, including new sections on advisory declarations, interim injunctions, costs, and protective costs orders
