With the coming into effect of the Promotion of Administrative Justive Act at the end of 2000, South African administrative law entered a new era. The Act has become the legislative foundation of the general administrative law of South Africa. It codifies a body of rules and principles previously governed by the common law and, since 1994, by direct application of the administrative justice rights in the Constitution. The Benchbook is a commentary on the Act for use by the government officials, lawyers, judges and magistrates who are required to interpret and implement it. The general administrative law of South Africa has a long history and a rich jurispudence. This commentary situates the Act in the context of this tradition. It answers the questions: where does the Act fit in? What difference does the Act make?
