Description of Product

Since it's first publication in 1980, this book has been the locus classicus and leading authority on administrative law in Malaysia and Singapore. Quoted and referred to by the courts, leading practitioners and other publications, this fourth edition would be a welcome update to the 3rd edition of 1997. Since then, there has been numerous legislative developments, significant rulings by the court in both countries, proliferation of the administrative process and growing public interest in area of law.
This edition reflects this growing importance of administrative functioning, decision-making and makes a comparative study with other commonwealth countries such as India, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

Adopting a similiar approach to the late MP Jain's prose, Dr Damien Cremean has sifted through a wealth of legislation and key cases in both Malaysia and Singapore. He explained the norms and principles of administrative law of its philosophical and historical aspects; and has provided a comparative study with other jurisdictions like the US, UK and several commonwealth countries. Jurisdiction are compared and contrasted in depth with reference to the latest legislation with clear explanation, analysis, discussions and commentaries. Updates to the latest 2010 and 2011 of Malaysia, Singapore and international jurisdiction of legislation and cases are provided.

This book offers the reader a wider prespective and opportunity to comprehend this rapidly growing area of law and the realisation as to how this area of the law permeates into the ordinary citizen's life and how the reader is affected by government decision-making on areas such as labour law, trade and commerce, taxation, environmental laws, etc.
