Administrative Law: Principles and Advocacy, 4th Edition teaches readers the fundamental principles of administrative law. Through simple language and practical examples, readers will understand key legal issues and learn how to successfully argue cases before administrative tribunals.
The fourth edition is divided into three parts: Principles and Theory, Advocacy, and Challenging Administrative Decision-Making and Enforcing Orders. Part I introduces readers to fundamental administrative law principles, such as the right to be heard and the duty to give reasons, with an emphasis on procedural fairness. Part II examines effective advocacy and outlines procedures at every stage of the hearing process, including presenting evidence at a hearing and conduct outside of the hearing. Part III addresses issues that may arise after proceedings and steps that must then be taken.
Authors Liz Nastasi and Deborah Pressman have provided important legislative and pedagogical updates to the fourth edition. These cover major developments such as the rise of active adjudication, new dispute resolution processes that encourage mediation, and online processes.
