                  ADMINISTRATIVE LAW

                  Guest Editor's Preface

                          HANNA WILBERG

Administrative law as a subject of academic scholarship is in good heart in
New Zealand, nearly seven years on from the premature loss of the doyen of
New Zealand administrative law, Professor Michael Taggart. Administrative
law specialists in New Zealand law schools are still a small band, but our
ranks have been swelled by the very welcome arrival of Marcelo Rodriguez
Ferrere at Otago University a few years ago, and of Eddie Clark at Victoria
University last year. The latter arrived just a little too late to participate in
the workshop and conference that have given rise to the present special
issue, but we look forward to his contribution next time. We have also seen
the publication of new editions of Graham Taylor's Judicial Review: A New
Zealand Perspective, of Philip Joseph's Constitutional and Administrative
Law in New Zealand and of Matthew Smith's New Zealand Judicial Review
Handbook modelled on Michael Fordham's classic United Kingdom work.
    Even so, however, anyone who works in administrative law in New
Zealand today, whether in practice or in the law schools, will still agree
that there is a dearth of in-depth analysis of New Zealand developments in
this area. We can always find a variety of sources illuminating the English
position, including recent English cases, from a number of angles. But we
all know that the New Zealand position has long ceased to be quite the
same as the English, and yet there is often little written about our cases. To
some extent this is unavoidable in a small jurisdiction like ours. However,
it is exacerbated by the extent to which public lawyers' attention nowadays
is drawn away from administrative law to issues concerning rights or
international law; and by the relentless pressure on academics to publish
overseas, and hence to write on overseas jurisprudence.
    As one contribution towards remedying this scarcity, I am very glad to
present this special issue, comprising articles that were first presented at the
Legal Research Foundation New Zealand Administrative Law Conference
