This chapter discusses the right to a fair hearing, which has been used by the courts as a base on which to build a kind of code of fair administrative procedure, comparable to ‘due process of law’ under the Constitution of the United States. Topics covered include administrative cases and statutory hearings, the retreat from natural justice, the right to be heard, the protection of legitimate expectations, and exceptions to the right to a fair hearing.
