Product description

In the last 10 years, the law of professional regulation has undergone a number of changes that render the case law prior to 2004 largely irrelevant. That's what makes this new volume by expert Bryan Salte such a welcome – and necessary – publication. The Law of Professional Regulation discusses the impact of the seminal cases of the past decade, including Dunsmuir v. New Brunswick, F.H. v. McDougal, R. v. Conway and Binet v. Pharmascience Inc.,. This text also offers an up-to-date look at the legal principles and procedures governing this important area.

In-depth Content
This comprehensive textbook provides valuable information that is applicable to the regulation of not only legal professionals, but also medical and financial professionals including doctors and accountants, amongst others. Since the scope of administrative law is wide, the principles and tribunal procedures discussed in The Law of Professional Regulation are useful to lawyers representing clients in virtually any profession that is governed by a regulatory body. This book is also a unique resource for in-house and government lawyers, where the professionals within their organization are heavily regulated and are seeking to reduce the cost of outside counsel.

Salte offers a guide to long-standing principles, recent case law and procedural elements related to professional regulation issues. In particular, readers of this volume will benefit from its:

  • Comprehensive overview of this area of the law, geared to administrative law lawyers
  • Discussion of all angles of investigations and hearings
  • Coverage of general principles, admission to the profession, duties and liability issues
  • Examination of the impact of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and various Human Rights Codes
