Abstract
This Commentary 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, the article 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.
French Abstract
Ce commentaire porte sur les défis qui accompagnent aujourd’hui l’enseignement du droit administratif. S’inspirant de la propre expérience professionnelle de l’auteur et de son engagement envers un compte rendu fidèle du droit et de l’arbitrage, cet article remet en question le fondement tant du droit administratif que de la théorie du criticisme. Il ne propose aucun argument exhaustif ni convaincant sur ce qu’il y aurait à faire, mais insiste sur l’à-propos et l’importance de combiner dans une approche pédagogique convaincante la théorie et la doctrine juridiques.
