This special series of posts, examining whether Australian administrative law is still fit for purpose, will be published throughout 2021 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Kerr Report. The series has been organised, and the posts commissioned, by Dr Janina Boughey and Dr Lynsey Blayden – and we are very grateful to them for bringing this series to AUSPUBLAW.
