Government Accountability: Australian Administrative Law presents a thorough account of the administrative state and the mechanisms that exist to bring it to account for its actions. It contextualises the theory and explanation of administrative law through carefully chosen case studies and events that offer practical examples of the principles discussed and how they are applied. The third edition has been thoroughly updated to incorporate recent legal developments and includes expanded discussion of 'materiality' in the context of jurisdictional error. The examples used illustrate the operation of legal principles and reflect contemporary social and political circumstances. Written by a team of experts, and known for its clear, consistent and straightforward narrative with logical progression, Government Accountability remains a student-friendly guide to complex administrative law concepts. Government Accountability: Australian Administrative Law is accompanied by a casebook, Government Accountability Sources and Materials: Australian Administrative Law, which provides curated cases and primary legal materials with helpful commentary.
Government Accountability Sources and Materials: Australian Administrative Law is designed to accompany the third edition of the textbook Government Accountability: Australian Administrative Law. Following the accessible structure of Government Accountability, this book guides students through the real-world operation of administrative law and demonstrates how multiple doctrines and mechanisms can interact in a single situation. Extracts from primary materials – including cases and legislation – provide a clear account of the facts, issues and statutory provisions considered by the courts, and are accompanied by relevant commentary. This edition has been thoroughly updated to include recent significant cases such as Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs v Viane (2021), Hocking v Director-General of the National Archives of Australia (2020) and MZAPC v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection (2021). Written by a team of experts, Government Accountability Sources and Materials: Australian Administrative Law is a fundamental and student-friendly introduction to administrative law in practice.
The cases and materials in this book complement the introduction to administrative law provided in Government Accountability – Australian Administrative Law (‘the textbook’). It is assumed that readers of this book will also have access to the textbook. The chapters in this book mirror those in the textbook. We envisage that readers will begin their study of a topic by reading the relevant section of the textbook and will turn to this book to study key cases and concepts in greater depth.
Government Accountability: Australian Administrative Law Sources and Materials is a companion text to the second edition of Government Accountability: Australian Administrative Law. The casebook follows the structure of the textbook and provides a sophisticated and in-depth introduction to the principal areas of administrative law taught in Australia. Extracts from primary materials – including cases, legislation and judicial review – provide readers with an understanding of the key principles of administrative law and demonstrate how these mechanisms operate in practice. Case extracts provide a clear account of the facts, issues and statutory provisions considered by the courts. Extracts from secondary sources, including from parliamentary reports and publications by leading commentators in this field, further elucidate key concepts and controversies. Written by experts with substantial teaching and research experience, this is an essential text that will equip students with the tools to think critically and successfully apply the law to practice.
