The 2017 W G Hart Legal Workshop will explore political, institutional, economic and cultural factors that influence (or have in the past influenced) the emergence and development of legal regimes for controlling administrative power. For the purposes of the Workshop, a regime for controlling administrative power encompasses legal rules and principles (‘administrative law’), and also institutions and practices relating to control of administrative power. Administrative power is understood broadly in terms of any and all of the multifarious functions and activities associated with modern ‘governance’.  The workshop is generously sponsored by the WG Hart Workshop Fund and the Institute for Advanced Legal Studies, and the Society of Legal Scholars.

Speakers and Discussants will include:

  • Control and Controllers of Administrative Power: Sophie Boyron (Birmingham Law School); Robert Thomas (Manchester Law School) and Joe Tomlinson (Sheffield Law School); Guillermo Jiminez Salas (University College London); Richard Kirkham (Sheffield Law School).
