Description

This work provides a conceptual framework for understanding the principles of administrative law

This text provides readers with a concise statement of the principles of administrative law. Rather than attempting to discuss the abundance of case law emanating from every Canadian jurisdiction, this work provides a conceptual framework for understanding the principles of administrative law, which readers may then apply to specific fact situations. The work covers all important topics in the field, including constitutional considerations, the concept of a statutory delegate, the acquisition of jurisdiction, procedural fairness, discretionary powers, standards of review, and public and private law remedies against governmental action.
