The New Definitive Treatise on Administrative Law in Canada

Administrative law is among the most vital and controversial aspects of the Canadian legal system, especially in the wake of recent landmark Supreme Court decisions Dunsmuir and Proprio Direct Inc. that have redefined the Standard of Review. The need to fully understand the nuances of this segment of the law grows more important as the lives of the public are increasingly touched by government regulation.

An expert in the areas of administrative law, constitutional law and government relations, author Guy Regimbald brings his immense practical expertise in these subjects to a definitive new treatise from Butterworths, Canadian Administrative Law. Lawyers, judges, administrative tribunal members and students will find this an indispensable tool when navigating through the contentious area of administrative law.
