This article attempts to bring together and to analyze critically the West Virginia cases dealing with review by courts of action taken by administrative officials and tribunals. Although a wealth of legal literature on federal administrative law is rapidly developing, studies of some phases of state law in this field are still relatively rare. The need for research in state administrative law is indicated by the seemingly unscientific approach of many courts to some problems, by an apparently high degree of incoherence in the decisions, and by the striking inadequacy of the case finders. This article proceeds upon the hypothesis that a more intensive study of the law of one jurisdiction is preferable to a less intensive examination of the general law, even though no assurance can be given that West Virginia is typical.
