The Hearing Principle

Show Summary Details


The idea that a person ought to be heard before a decision is made or action taken affecting his or her interests is often thought to be the most fundamental element of procedural fairness. This chapter primarily considers the hearing in various administrative contexts and examines briefly the elements of a hearing and other parts of the process, such as notice and disclosure, which are closely linked to it. It then goes on to consider the hearing principle and doctrine relating to it in different administrative contexts.

Keywords: procedural fairness; hearing principle; notice; disclosure; doctrine; hearing
