Washington Law Review


This issue of the Law Review inaugurates the use of the "symposium" technique of bringing together in one issue a group of articles dealing with a single area of Washington law. The choice of Washington administrative law as the topic of our first symposium is appropriate. Little has been written about the Washington administrative system or about the body of case law that has developed around that system. Hence, Attorney General O'Connell's article, pointing out the variances in procedures that exist among state agencies, is particularly valuable. Professor Trautman's article on delegation problems and Professor Peck's article on judicial review of administrative proceedings provide a much-needed discussion of Washington case law. Indicative of the lack of consistency displayed by the state legislature in passing legislation dealing with the administrative process is Professor Peck's valuable compilation of statutory provisions related to review proceedings.
