[Webinar] Specialist Insight Series - Constitutional and Administrative Law: Cases, Materials and Commentary

21 April 2021, 10.00am-11.30am

 

Overview

This webinar discusses challenges encountered in the teaching of constitutional and administrative law and the utility of casebooks as a pedagogical aid, in an age where public law scholarship is flourishing and litigation is burgeoning. Constitutionalism is a site where national history, custom, religion, social values and assumptions about government meet positive law, which underscores the importance of appreciating the constitution in context, in terms of universal principles of justice and autochthonous legal developments and local cultural and political imperatives such as the judicial identification with the ‘green light’ theory of administrative law. This webinar will examine some of the chief constitutional developments both within and beyond the courts, particularly those which have taken place since the 3rd edition (2010) of the casebook. This will include relational constitutionalism and the content of ‘harmony’ as a constitutional norm, basic structures doctrine, elections law, as well as leading cases which have impacted approaches towards what may be described as ‘three waves’ of constitutional interpretation in the young history of the Republic.
