Indigenising Administrative Law in Common Law Systems

Participants of the ‘Indigenising Administrative Law in Common Law Systems’ workshop

The ‘Indigenising Administrative Law in Common Law Systems’ workshop, organised by the Centre for Asian Legal Studies, was held on 7 and 8 December 2017 at NUS Law.

Convened by Assistant Professor Swati Jhaveri (NUS Law) and Associate Professor Michael Ramsden (Chinese University of Hong Kong), the workshop brought together a group of international scholars from a wide range of common law jurisdictions to compare the continued utilisation of English administrative law across systems that traditionally imported, or were modelled on, English administrative law. The conversations from the workshop will help develop a more robust understanding of different approaches to judicial review in the common law world; one that is not skewed towards a legal-liberal, Anglo-American paradigm.
