Abstract

This essay reflects upon the challenges of teaching Administrative Law today. Drawing upon the author's own career trajectory and his commitment to a critical account of law and adjudication, it seeks to question the foundations of both administrative law and critical theory. It offers no comprehensive or cogent plan as to what to do, but insists upon the relevance and importance of combining both legal theory and legal doctrine in a convincing pedagogical approach.
