Administrative Law as Regulation

Administrative Law as Regulation

(p.207) 10 Administrative Law as Regulation
Regulating Law

Peter Cane

Oxford University Press

The first section of the chapter aims to identify differences between a ‘legal’ and a ‘regulatory’ approach to administrative law. The second section defines administrative law, and, in the process, discusses Hugh Collins's analysis of the respective roles of public law and contract law in regulating government contracts. A major task in this section is to establish the importance of distinguishing between goals and tools of regulation. The third section discusses the goals of administrative law. The fourth section takes a closer look at administrative law viewed as a regulatory tool. This chapter also discusses empirical research about the regulatory impact of judicial review on bureaucratic behaviour.
