The unit initially examines the sources, nature and limits of discretionary administrative power. It then examines judicial review of administrative action including review of 'law-making' and administrative decision making. The scope, limits, grounds and remedies available to courts of law will be canvassed in some detail. These will then be contrasted with extra judicial modes of review by administrative tribunals and by the ombudsmen. Finally the unit involves consideration of methods of obtaining information from government agencies, including FOI laws.
