Product description

Your complete compendium of administrative law resources
Since the second edition of this book was published in 2008, administrative law in Canada has evolved considerably, due in part to a number of recent Supreme Court of Canada decisions. This third edition of Canadian Administrative Law provides an updated look at this important area of law, taking the new case law into account while still providing readers with a comprehensive guide to the subject. In particular, this volume offers an explanation of: the theoretical foundations of judicial review and how they are supported by the constitution; the powers of administrative decision-makers; why and under what circumstances decision-makers determine both constitutional and jurisdictional issues; the standard of review; fairness; bias; and procedural issues.

Highlights of This Essential Resource

  • Expert analysis, including comprehensive coverage of the key aspects of administrative law, such as procedural fairness, bias, impartiality, jurisdiction, discretion and the standards of review
  • Invaluable practical tips, including an in-depth discussion of the relationship between constitutional and administrative law in Canada
  • Relevant case law, fully updated
  • Research tools, including a table of cases and topical index which greatly reduce the work necessary when researching specific cases
