ADMINISTRATIVE LAW
Guy Régimbald, B.S.Sc., LL.B., B.C.L. (Oxon.), Matthew Estabrooks, LL.B. & John J. Wilson, B.A. (Hons.), J.D., B.C.L. (Oxon.)

Given the realities of the modern regulatory environment, the decisions of government tribunals, boards and agencies can often have as much practical impact as many judicial rulings. This makes a thorough grasp of the essential principles of administrative law increasingly necessary to properly protect client interests and understand issues of contemporary governance.

Halsbury's Administrative Law (2022 Reissue) provides a straightforward and accessible discussion of the rules that govern the activities of administrative agencies of government in Canada. Examining the body of general principles that shape the exercise of powers by public authorities, this clear narrative is an ideal general reference for lawyers and jurists or academics seeking a basic statement of the law in this important area. Topics covered include:

  • Jurisdictional issues
  • Constitutional framework
    • Parliamentary sovereignty and limits on legislative powers
    • Power to appoint judges
    • Federal courts
    • Supremacy clause
    • Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

AGRICULTURE
Dr. Donald Buckingham, LL.B., Dip. Int. Law (Cantab.), LL.D.

The law that regulates agriculture is drawn together from several "black letter" areas of private law (including the law of contracts, torts and property) and public law (including criminal law, regulatory law, administrative law and constitutional law). Activities relating to agriculture are affected not only by the regulatory effects of federal and provincial legislation directly targeting the sector, but also by a large body of law of general application that affects producers, processors and distributors of agricultural products.

Halsbury's Agriculture (2022 Reissue) discusses the many aspects of private and public law that regulate how farming is carried out in Canada, including:

  • The constitutional framework that governs agriculture
  • The acquisition, use and disposal of farmland
  • Farm financing
  • Environmental issues
  • Laws impacting animals, plants and agricultural inputs
  • Laws affecting agricultural workers and farm families

ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Duncan W. Glaholt, B.A., J.D., FCIArb & Markus Rotterdam, Dipl.-Jur., LL.M.

Alternative Dispute Resolution ("ADR") is commonly used as a term describing means of resolving disputes outside of traditional litigation processes. As the expenses associated with adversarial court-based litigation climb in an over-crowded judicial system, ADR has become an increasingly popular way of resolving conflicts between parties, making an understanding of the methods and implications of ADR essential for every practitioner. This title discusses a number of such alternative dispute resolution methodologies, including:

  • Mediation
  • Conciliation
  • Expert determination
  • Dispute review
  • Advisory boards
  • Ombuds

Also discussed is:

  • Domestic and international arbitration
  • Community and faith-based dispute resolution models
  • Processes within the court system that incorporate aspects of ADR such as court- annexed mediation and settlement and pre-trial conferences
