Summary This publication contains the edited papers from the Administrative Law Forum held in Melbourne in June 1998. The Forum is an annual event sponsored by the Australian Institute of Administrative Law (AIAL). The title of the 1998 Forum was chosen to provoke discussion about whether administrative law can be neatly packaged or compartmentalised, distinct from broader public "rule of law" issues or from private law values. It was intended to expose both the diversity and direction of contemporary change in administrative law, but at the same time to show how those changes must be rooted in basic ideas about the role of government, administration, and our democratic system
