Power of a public nature must neither be abused nor exceeded. Administrative law is the branch of public law which is principally concerned with ensuring that the government, government departments, tribunals and all authorities exercising public law functions act within the perimeters of their power. Administrative Law In Malaysia is a necessary component to a modern and responsible governmental system.
The applicable principles of Malaysian administrative law are set out in clear and succinct language in Administrative Law in Malaysia. This book is the result of a thorough examination of Malaysian and international court rulings, primarily from the United Kingdom and Australia.
The book is dense with facts from the key cases, as well as judicial dicta clarifying and applying the law to those instances, to facilitate comprehension. The substantive grounds for judicial review are examined, and readers are educated about how local law may differ from that of main Commonwealth jurisdictions where applicable.
The writers have included a significant amount of new material to this revised new version to bring the book up to date as well as to expand the depth of analysis and discussion.
The possible remedies to a successful claimant are critically examined, and the legal situation is summarised for easy comprehension and use by busy legal practitioners. The book tries to outline the way forward in cases where the local position is uncertain or has not been directly considered by the courts. The book also discusses the government's tort culpability and the availability of injunctions against the government.
Lawyers, judicial officers, public officials, in-house counsel, and non-governmental organisations should not miss the second edition of Administrative Law in Malaysia.
