One of the consequences of the apartheid era was that South African law became increasingly isolated from doctrinal developments elsewhere in the common-law world. This was nowhere more evident than in the area of administrative law. Moreover, this lack of impact was reciprocated, with little interest shown elsewhere in South African law and legal literature. Nevertheless, the growing international recognition of the abhorrence of apartheid generated a surprising amount of case law, some of it under the rubric of administrative law. This is a neglected part of the annals of apartheid. My purpose here is three-fold: to discuss that case law, to indicate the directions in which it has pointed Commonwealth administrative law and to draw lessons from it.
