Fundamentals of Administrative Law & Practice
|Event Date/Time: Apr 23, 2009||End Date/Time: Apr 24, 2009|
Administrative law is one of the most challenging and complex areas of law to master. For example, the â€œduty of fairnessâ€ can comprise one set of procedural safeguards in one situation and a completely different set in another. The rules of evidence for administrative hearings are completely different from those that govern trials in a court.
And thatâ€™s just the beginning!
This comprehensive course, staffed by leading experts, will provide you with in-depth, nuts-and-bolts coverage of the fundamentals of administrative law and practice in Canada, including:
* Overview of the rules of natural justice and procedural fairness
* Availability of Charter remedies at the tribunal level
* Evidentiary issues in administrative proceedings
* Bias and lack of independence
* Making tribunal decisions and writing effective reasons
* Practical tips and advice to improve practice before tribunals
You will have ample opportunity to ask questions and compare notes with your peers. And, you will benefit by receiving extensive written materials that will prove to be an invaluable resource long after the conference is over.
