Edition 8 Revised edition
Publication Date 31 May 18
OverviewFully updated to cover all the latest administrative law decisions, Douglas and Jones is already well established as a leading text on administrative law, a reliable book notable for its accessibility, background material and contemporary perspective. For the 8th edition, Roger Douglas is joined in authorship by Professor Michael Head, Yee-Fui Ng and Margaret Hyland, three other experienced administrative law writers and educators, in order to maintain the book's reputation. Key parts of the book have been revamped to focus on addressing student needs, while still providing essential case extracts. It takes account of major recent shifts, such as the tribunal amalgamations, Freedom of Information developments and a range of significant High Court decisions, including on unreasonableness, procedural fairness, bias and jurisdictional error. Major Features of the New Edition: Latest Decisions: The text incorporates full analysis of the High Court's recent decisions in Forrest & Forrest Pty Ltd v Wilson on invalidity and Graham v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection on judicial review and jurisdictional error. Substantial revisions to the chapters on non-judicial review to take account of the Commonwealth tribunal amalgamations and related developments up to late 2017. Comprehensive analysis of the revamped Legislation Act 2003 (Cth), dealing with delegated legislation. Fully revised and updated for every major High Court administrative law case since the 7th edition, including Minister for Immigration and Border Protection v SZSSJ on procedural fairness, Maritime Union of Australia v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection on delegated legislation and Isbester v Knox City Council on bias.
