Law and Administration 3rd Edition by Carol Harlow and Richard Rawlings pdf free download. Law and Administration has never been simply a textbook of administrative law. As its title signifies, our primary objective in writing it was to further the study of law in the context of public administration and politics: the ‘law in context’ approach.

The formalist approach was reflected both in the dominant casebook method of teaching and the leading administrative law textbooks: de Smith’s Judicial Review of Administrative Action – a title that speaks for itself – and Wade’s Administrative Law, a slimmer version of the current well respected text were ‘process’, ‘legitimacy’ ‘competency’ and a functionalist concern with eff ectiveness and efficiency.

In respect of judicial review, we tried, by the inclusion of case studies, to free the case law from the formalist method that had smothered its political connotations and to re-establish the connections between judicial review and its political context.
