Abstract

On May 25 - 26, 2010, Université Laval, the University of Windsor Faculty of Law and the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law, hosted the Sixth Administrative Law Discussion Forum in Quebec City, Canada.The forum provided an opportunity for thoughtful exchange among administrative law academics on contemporary issues that cut across national borders. The discussions reflected in this collection of papers touch on a variety of major administrative law themes. In addition, they examine local aspects of problems that transcend regional and national borders, and show connections and preoccupations between jurisdictions and indeed between countries.

This year's forum centred on two topics: “The New Regulation,” which included a variety of regulatory issues that affect not only Canada and the US, but also Europe; and “The Differences between Adjudicative Structures” which brought attention to European decision-making models and North American debates about internal and external structures of administrative adjudication. Through the lens of these two broad themes flowed a rich and contextualized discussion of topics ranging from accountability and consultation in the regulatory context, to challenges posed by the structural role of decision-making agents and processes in an administrative state. The authors of this collection of papers are notable scholars in the field who have addressed these issues with perspicacity and candor. Offering both theoretical grounding as well as practical insight on a host of administrative law challenges, their work will prove of interest to academics, policymakers and practitioners alike.

Keywords: administrative law, comparative administrative law, transnational law, public law theory
