The Hardback edition has been discontinued

Wade and Forsyth's Administrative Law has been a cornerstone text since its first edition in 1961. It provides a comprehensive and perceptive account of the principles of judicial review and the administrative arrangements of the United Kingdom. For over fifty years, Administrative Law has been trusted by students in the UK and internationally and is extensively cited by Courts in England and Wales.

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:-

  • The decisions of the Supreme Court and details of how the change from the Appeals Committee of the House of Lords as the apex court to the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom has affected administrative law
  • Details of statutory changes such as the Equality Act 2010, the Localism Act 2011, the Justice and Security Act 2013, the European Union (Amendment) Act 2008 and the European Union Act 2011
  • Coverage of the changes proposed by the Ministry of Justice regarding judicial review as set out in their consultation paper Judicial Review: Proposals for Reform (London 2012)
