National Roundtable on Administrative Law | Masters in Our House: Adjudicative Sovereignty versus Judicial Oversight
Bilingual program with simultaneous interpretation
Participation in this program is accredited in provinces where CLE requirements for lawyers are mandatory.
David Ogilvy one of the founders of modern advertising once said, “Hire people better than you, and let them get on with it.” So goes the wisdom in administrative law, where governments and the judiciary acknowledge the need for expert and specialized tribunals to deliver accessible and responsive justice for the public. Yet there are limits, which provide comfort for parties who feel tribunals go too far, and for lawyers and academics who specialize in the law of standard of review.
What principles should form the basis of those limits, and what legal mechanisms should be used to enforce them? Should the approach be the same across all domains of administrative decision-making, or are there defensible reasons for applying different standards, and different oversight regimes in different contexts?
