Your complete compendium of administrative law resources
Since the first 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 second 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.
