Abstract

In the USA, there is sustained interest in the use of case studies in public administrative education in management and administrative law dates from the 1940s. Public administration and law both turned to cases as teaching devices when their dominant intellectual traditions were no longer viable. Although it has since declined, a public management case study movement was very influential in the late 1940s and 1950s. Administrative law casebooks have remained popular, and there are several titles specifically intended for public administration programmes. Efforts to “reinvent” public administration are likely to generate renewed interest in management‐oriented cases.
