Making administrative or adjudicative decisions, and writing reasons for them, is an art. Nobody is born knowing how to do it, and even law schools don’t teach it. As a result, people appointed to administrative tribunals, whether lawyers or people chosen for their other skills and expertise, are often uncertain and intimidated by the task at hand.

Fortunately, these skills can be taught. That’s why The Canadian Institute has developed an intensive two-day course that is a mixture of legal grounding and practical exercises. This outstanding program is specially designed to help you gain confidence as a decision-maker and writer.

Working with experienced adjudicators from tribunals, commissions and courts, you’ll

get a comprehensive rundown on the essential law governing administrative decision making including important recent changes, and
learn how to organize the issues, find facts and apply the law to the facts so as to resolve the issues.
Then, using hands-on exercises, you’ll learn how to organize and write reasons for your decision clearly and efficiently. There will be plenty of time for audience interaction with instructors, including class discussion and Q&A.

Plus! Don’t miss the pre-conference workshop on The Fundamentals of Administrative Law.
