Administrative law is concerned with the interaction between a government and its citizens, which occurs in areas of immense practical importance to ordinary citizens, such as health care, education, public housing and social security benefits. Determining the manner in which such interaction should take place is a continuing focus of the law in democratic states.

Comparing Administrative Justice Across the Commonwealth examines a range of themes relevant to administrative justice. It begins by considering it in a constitutional context, and then proceeds to compare fundamental concepts of administrative law as they have developed in different Commonwealth countries. This is followed by studies of specific countries and a discussion of practical steps that have been taken to enhance the quality of administrative justice.

This book provides a unique multifaceted insight into the development of administrative justice and the jurisprudential as well as practical questions to be considered in promoting it. Contributors include eminent lawyers from many Commonwealth jurisdictions.
