W(h)ither Public Law?

Wednesday 26 April 18:30 until 20:00
Chowen Lecture Theatre, Brighton and Sussex Medical School, University of Sussex BN1 9PX
Speaker: Lindsay Stirton, Professor of Public Law

 

Until the 1960s, the UK lacked a system of public (administrative) law. Lord Diplock regarded its subsequent creation as “the greatest achievement of [his] judicial lifetime.” Professor Stirton challenges this view. Public law, he argues, has failed. It operates mainly as a system of ‘top-down’ constraints, in the manner of Bentham’s ‘Securities Against Misrule’, paying little heed not just to the interests of those affected by administrative action, but also to the needs of good administration.
