Recent Developments in Administrative Law and Alternative Dispute Resolution grew out of papers from the Global Administrative Law Discussion Forum held at University of Aix-Marseille III in June 2010 involving scholars from the United States, Italy, France, the United Kingdom, and Israel. The forum was centered on two topics: “Using Courts to Police Agency Action” and “The Chief Executive’s (President’s/Prime Minister’s) Authority in Relation to Matters Committed to Administrative Agencies.” The book itself, the first volume in the Global Papers Series, includes chapters from a number of prominent administrative law professors, who focus on two separate and distinct administrative topics: dispute resolution in the administrative context and recent developments of particular significance. The participants hail from different nations, and indeed different continents, and therefore bring a variety of perspectives to these topics.
The Global Papers Series involves publications of papers by nationally and internationally prominent legal scholars on a variety of important legal topics, including administrative law, freedom of expression, defamation and criminal law. The books in this series present the work of scholars from different nations who bring diverse perspectives to the issues under discussion.
