Administrative law is a fast-growing subject in Zambia today. For a long time, the teaching and learning of administrative law relied upon textbooks from England. With the establishment of law schools where administrative law is one of the core courses taught, the need arose for a comprehensive text that enables the proper teaching and learning of this subject in a Zambian context.
Administrative Law in Zambia deals with Zambian cases and materials in a way that is user-friendly for both lecturers and students. The book incorporates a historical perspective of the development of administrative law in Zambia from the colonial era to what it is today. Zambian material is complemented by resources from the English legal system and other jurisdictions.
The cases and materials included will allow scholars and researchers to appreciate how the Zambian administrative process has developed over the years. The book also contains discussions of old cases which established various principles that new cases continue to rely on.
Administrative Law in Zambia is primarily targeted at law students in various institutions of higher learning. The book is also a practical guide for legal practitioners, academics and researchers who need reference material close at hand. It aims to foster a better understanding of administrative law in a Zambian setting.
