Law and Administration Summary

Law and Administration by Carol Harlow (London School of Economics and Political Science)

Law and Administration takes a contextual approach to administrative law, setting law and legal rules in the context of the social, political and economic forces that shape the law, and of the complex constitutional framework in which contemporary administrative law operates. This book contains a full account of judicial review, the traditional heartland of administrative law, and adds to this by taking into account the concerns of government, officials and agencies who operate and shape the law. It also looks at the possible future of administrative law in an increasingly automated and digitalised world. A fully revised and updated new edition, this book includes new case studies of regulatory agencies and government contracting to develop understanding of law in practice.

Law and Administration Reviews

'From its first edition in 1984, this book has deliberately provoked lawyers to venture beyond their doctrinal bubbles: it truly is the leading work on law and administration. Its coverage of legal doctrine is vast, its sense of where the law has come from and where it is heading has always been unerring, and above all, its research into the effects of administration upon law (and vice versa) is dazzling. This new edition has been radically rewritten, including (for example) new material on the UK post-Brexit, governing in a pandemic, and computerised decision-making and rule-making in the era of artificial intelligence.' Mark Aronson, Emeritus Professor in the Faculty of Law and Justice, University of New South Wales
