This course examines the relationship between the law and the exercise of public power. Topics covered include: consideration of the state in the United Kingdom and its changing nature; the character of public administration and the evolution of administrative law; the development, role and impact of judicial review in both Scotland and England; and non-judicial mechanisms by which public administrative power is regulated, by reference to particular topical case studies. This is a skill-based course: students are expected to undertake significant personal research focused on the coursework and pre-released examination questions.
