Product description

"The field of Administrative Law is one that is ever growing and ever changing. For counsel, administrative adjudicators and judges, the principles that underlie the field are expansive and may enjoy differing applications from tribunal to tribunal...

The text will provide important guidance for the administrative process, and those who participate in that process will now be better able to analyze and apply the existing law when striving to understand and apply the existing law to the vast array of administrative issues discussed by the authors.

Mr. Thomas and the rest of the contributors are to be congratulated for their most helpful work, and for its breadth and clarity."

– The Honourable Justice Christopher E. Hinkson, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of British Columbia.

Busy administrative law practitioners will find this new volume by Michael Thomas an indispensable addition to their libraries. Administrative Justice: A Practitioner's Guide is an easy-to-use reference that provides straightforward access to the most relevant administrative law cases. Organized into two sections – cases of specific application and cases pertaining to professional associations – and then broken down by subject matter, this comprehensive casebook will enable administrative lawyers and litigators to advise their clients based on the most relevant, up-to-date decisions.
