Overview

Keeping up with the Dunsmuirs

Recent Developments in Administrative Law 

This session will examine key recent administrative law issues addressed by the Supreme Court of Canada including:   how might the Supreme Court’s jurisprudence on standard of review evolve (Capilano Shopping Centre case and others );  Charter challenges in administrative law proceedings (Loyola High School); and  implicit jurisdiction of administrative bodies (Green v. Law Society of Manitoba). 

This session will also address:  the rule making authority of administrative bodies and the role of empirical evidence (the Sobeys West litigation in the BC and Alberta Court of Appeal); the challenges of self-represented litigants in administrative law proceedings; and judicial review of decisions by non-governmental bodies such as churches, social clubs and athletic organizations.  When will the Courts take jurisdiction?  (Wall, Alberta Court of Appeal, leave to appeal to SCC granted)
