Beatson, Matthews and Elliott's Administrative Law Text & Materials combines carefully selected extracts from key cases, articles, and other sources with detailed commentary. Aimed at undergraduates studying administrative law, it provides comprehensive coverage of the subject and brings together in one volume the best features of a textbook and a casebook. Administrative law is presented in this book as the expression of a set of deeper constitutional and other policy concerns which fundamentally shape the relationship between the individual and the state, rather than simply as a body of legal rules which regulates that relationship. Online Resource Centre This book is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre, which includes bi-annual updates to the text, and a list of useful web links.
