Judicial Review of Administrative Action and Government Liability is one of Australia’s most respected legal texts. It was selected as the first title in Thomson Reuters’ prestigious Lawbook Library Series, because it represents definitive legal scholarship and publishing excellence in Australian law.

For almost three decades, this work has both mapped and supported development of the law and practice of judicial review of administrative action throughout Australia. Repeatedly cited in the High Court of Australia, this landmark work remains the definitive scholarly work for judicial officers, practitioners and students alike.

In the Seventh Edition, the authors have restructured the book, and have added new chapters responding to debate about Australia's distinctive approach to judicial review and the obligation to support administrative decisions with statements of reasons.

Significant developments since the Sixth Edition published in 2017 include:

  • Review for unreasonableness, irrationality, and errors of fact;
  • The materiality of decision-makers' errors;
  • Subconscious bias;
  • Onus of proof in habeas corpus;
  • Developing legislative methods for restricting judicial review;
  • Progress payments schemes for the construction industry;
  • Damages for government torts; and
  • Misfeasance in public office.

Mark Aronson, Matthew Groves and Greg Weeks once again combine their expertise to ensure this pre-eminent title continues to provide fresh and authoritative treatment of judicial review of administrative actions in Australia, and an invaluable guide to the special problems relating to government liability in tort, contract and equity.
