Wade & Forsyth’s Administrative Law provides a comprehensive and perceptive account of the principles of judicial review and a sketch of te administrative machinery of the United Kingdom. Since the first edition published in 1961, Administrative Law has established a reputation for itself in the foremost rank of classic legal textbooks and is frequently cited with a approval in the higher courts.
For this, the ninth edition, Sir William Wade and Dr. Christopher Forsyth have brought this classic account of administrative law up to date in light of recent case law and legislation,continuing the trend towards a fuller account of European influences and providing a comprehensive assessment of the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 on this branch of the law.
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, both
academics and practitioners alike.
