Product Description

Administrative Law: Cases, Text, and Materials, 8th Edition  offers a comprehensive and up-to-date review of administrative law in Canada with new case law and tribunal decisions, legislative updates, and recent policy developments.

The eighth edition includes an in-depth analysis of the Supreme Court of Canada’s 2019 Vavilov  trilogy, discussing its fundamental changes for judicial reviews and statutory appeals as well as its impact on lower courts. This edition provides an updated look at the remedies in administrative law (monetary, non-monetary and Charter) and the role of judicial discretion, the interpretation and application of statutory restrictions, judicial proposals for a public law approach to liability, and re-evaluations of existing principles of governmental liability.

  • A synthesis chapter examining the constitutional foundations and historical evolution of the standard of review analysis
  • A more in-depth discussion on appellate standards of review that now apply on statutory appeals from the decisions of administrative tribunals
  • Updated material on discretion and the review of discretionary decisions that engage the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
