  • Description: This book explores the statutory and historical setting of the cases presented, rather than mere doctrine. It examines lawyers’ judgments and tactics in detail, and frequently references recently revealed papers of Supreme Court Justices to discuss the often surprising elements of Court decisions. Students learn how disputes are handled at the administrative level, before they ever get to court – a perspective essential to understanding the field, but difficult to discern from the reported cases. The commentary also addresses how decisions can affect future developments, helping students understand how administrative disputes develop and the role lawyers play in developing them.
