Content

The unit initially considers the nature of  public power in the context of Australian constitutionalism, with a particular emphasis on administrative decision-making.  It then examines the scope and limits of judicial review of administrative action, including the grounds and remedies available to courts of law.  Judicial review is subsequently contrasted with extra judicial modes of review by administrative tribunals and by ombudsmen. Finally the unit considers the importance of information about government decision-making, and how information can be obtained from government agencies under freedom of information and other laws.
