Product Description

Administrative Law in Context, 4th Edition examines the latest developments in the field of administrative law, relating to the important and contemporary contexts that shape legal ideas. This authoritative casebook provides a collaborative analysis of key principles and seminal cases by leveraging the voices of Canada’s leading scholars and practitioners.

The fourth edition includes a practical and in-depth analysis of the Supreme Court of Canada’s 2019 Vavilov trilogy. Bell, NFL, and Vavilov’s seminal decisions generated fundamental changes to the appellate standards of review. This edition also includes updated chapter questions, discussions, commentary, and practice tips.

This text employs an experiential teaching approach to the Canadian doctrine of administrative law, combining theory and applied learning to provide a text that students can take with them, from the classroom to the courtroom.
