The scope of potential judicial review of administrative action and the impact that this has on the functions of the administrator make up the central part of this subject. The instances when administrative bodies are required to follow the principles of natural justice have expanded significantly in recent years and thus the circumstances in which natural justice needs to be invoked and the requirements of natural justice are considered. The traditional controls exercised by the courts over administrative action are examined as well as the recent major legislative innovations in this field involving the Ombudsman, the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and Judicial Review by the Federal Court.
