About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Emphasises statutory interpretation by setting out the relevant statutory provisions at the start of each case extract and by showing how these provisions were interpreted in each case
    • Enriches the study of administrative law by including a range of parliamentary materials, government reports, and scholarly writing in addition to cases
    • Case extracts show the human and social context in which administrative law is applied
