How effective are the courts in controlling bureaucracies? What impact does judicial review have on the agencies which are targeted by its rulings? For the first time, this book brings together the insights of two intellectual disciplines which have hitherto explored these questions separately: political science and law/socio-legal studies. Leading international scholars from both fields present new research which focuses on the relationship between judicial review and bureaucratic behaviour. Individual contributors discuss fundamental conceptual and methodological issues, in addition to presenting a number of empirical case studies from various parts of the world: the United States, Canada, Australia, Israel, and the United Kingdom. This volume constitutes a landmark text offering an international, interdisciplinary and empirical perspective on judicial review's impact on bureaucracies. It will significantly advance the research agenda concerning judicial review and its relationship to social change.

'Socio-legal studies of judicial review to assess its socio-bureaucratic impact are a contemporary trend ... a timely and insightful addition. ... Researchers will gain much insight ... a good reminder of the strengths and influence of law and judicial review in our life ... contains rich bibliographies and refers to a wide range of cases, which will enormously benefit future researchers of judicial impact. Intellectually insightful and focussed ... should attract a wide readership.' Cambridge Law Journal
"...a fine overview of the state of research in the law and society tradition with a nod to political science and administrative law." Perspectives on Politics, Susan Rose-Ackerman, Yale University
