First published in the 1930s, Bradley, Ewing and Knight is one of the UK’s best known law textbooks of all time. Written by senior academics and a leading public law practitioner, the book is the definitive guide to all aspects of the constitution, and as such has been cited by courts across the world, including the UK’s Supreme Court. At its heart however, the book remains a student textbook with one fundamental aim; to provide all law students with an accessible and comprehensive grounding in Public Law suitable for use on both first year modules, and more advanced optional courses. This 17th edition has been substantially updated to reflect the major constitutional upheavals of recent times, including: · Consideration of the impact of R (Miller) v Secretary of State for Exiting the EU across a range of chapters on Parliamentary sovereignty, the rule of law, devolution, and the relationship between EU law and national law. · A total rewrite of chapter 6 on Britain and the EU, with a full analysis of the constitutional implications of Brexit; · Discussion of the use of the rule of law by the Supreme Court in recent high-profile decisions such as Evans (Prince Charles’ letters and the executive veto) and Unison (employment tribunal fees). · A major rewrite of substantial parts of chapter 16 on privacy and surveillance, to take in the Investigatory Powers Act 2016, the so-called 'snooper's charter'; · Re-examination of the devolution settlements following the Scottish independence referendum, Brexit, the Scotland Act 2016 and the Wales Act 2017, along with expanded consideration of local government within the constitution.

Creating the Administrative Constitution

The Lost One Hundred Years of American Administrative Law

Author: Jerry L. Mashaw

Publisher: Yale University Press

ISBN: 030018347X

Category: Law

Page: 448

View: 2878

This groundbreaking book is the first to look at administration and administrative law in the earliest days of the American republic. Contrary to conventional understandings, Mashaw demonstrates that from the very beginning Congress delegated vast discretion to administrative officials and armed them with extrajudicial adjudicatory, rulemaking, and enforcement authority. The legislative and administrative practices of the U.S. Constitution’s first century created an administrative constitution hardly hinted at in its formal text. Beyond describing a history that has previously gone largely unexamined, this book, in the author’s words, will "demonstrate that there has been no precipitous fall from a historical position of separation-of-powers grace to a position of compromise; there is not a new administrative constitution whose legitimacy should be understood as not only contestable but deeply problematic."

European Administrative Law in the Constitutional Treaty

Author: Eva Nieto-Garrido,Isaac Martín Delgado

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing

ISBN: 1847313833

Category: Law

Page: 210

View: 5021

This book presents an integrated approach to general questions of European administrative law and offers some possible solutions to the problems which it poses, the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe being the point of reference. Under the Treaty general questions of administrative law are no longer addressed merely in a fragmented or incidental way but as a discipline that governs the exercise of sovereign powers by a supranational entity. This calls for a detailed examination of the fields which comprise European administrative law and the book therefore examines in some detail the key areas of rulemaking powers and normative instruments, the implications of the Charter of Fundamental Rights for European and national administrations, administrative procedure, and judicial protection within the European Union. The Foreword to the book is written by Professor Carol Harlow.

Is Administrative Law Unlawful?

Is administrative law unlawful? This provocative question has become all the more significant with the expansion of the modern administrative state. While the federal government traditionally could constrain liberty only through acts of Congress and the courts, the executive branch has increasingly come to control Americans through its own administrative rules and adjudication, thus raising disturbing questions about the effect of this sort of state power on American government and society. With Is Administrative Law Unlawful?, Philip Hamburger answers this question in the affirmative, offering a revisionist account of administrative law. Rather than accepting it as a novel power necessitated by modern society, he locates its origins in the medieval and early modern English tradition of royal prerogative. Then he traces resistance to administrative law from the Middle Ages to the present. Medieval parliaments periodically tried to confine the Crown to governing through regular law, but the most effective response was the seventeenth-century development of English constitutional law, which concluded that the government could rule only through the law of the land and the courts, not through administrative edicts. Although the US Constitution pursued this conclusion even more vigorously, administrative power reemerged in the Progressive and New Deal Eras. Since then, Hamburger argues, administrative law has returned American government and society to precisely the sort of consolidated or absolute power that the US Constitution—and constitutions in general—were designed to prevent. With a clear yet many-layered argument that draws on history, law, and legal thought, Is Administrative Law Unlawful? reveals administrative law to be not a benign, natural outgrowth of contemporary government but a pernicious—and profoundly unlawful—return to dangerous pre-constitutional absolutism.

To what extent is the language of judicial opinions responsive to the political and social context in which constitutional courts operate? Courts are reason-giving institutions, with argumentation playing a central role in constitutional adjudication. However, a cursory look at just a handful of constitutional systems suggests important differences in the practices of constitutional judges, whether in matters of form, style, or language. Focusing on independently-verified leading cases globally, a combination of qualitative and quantitative analysis offers the most comprehensive and systematic account of constitutional reasoning to date. This analysis is supported by the examination of eighteen legal systems around the world including the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice. Universally common aspects of constitutional reasoning are identified in this book, and contributors also examine whether common law countries differ to civil law countries in this respect.
