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. It is a necessary component to a modern and responsible governmental system.

Administrative Law in Malaysia sets out in clear and succinct language the applicable principles of Malaysian administrative law. This book contains the fruits of a detailed study of Malaysian and foreign, principally English and Australian, court decisions. To aid understanding, the text is rich in the facts of the leading cases and the judicial dicta explaining and applying the law to those cases. The substantive grounds of judicial review are explored and, where appropriate, readers are informed how the local law may differ from the position in major Commonwealth jurisdictions. In this revised new edition, the authors have added a considerable amount of new materials to bring the text up-to-date as well as to increase the depth of analysis and discussion.

The remedies available to the successful litigant are critically considered and the legal position is summarised for easy comprehension and application by busy legal practitioners. Where the local position is unclear or has not been directly considered by the courts, the book attempts to point the way forward. The liability of the government in tort and the availability of injunctions against the government are also covered in the book.
