To function well, our administrative law system requires a delicate balance between independence and oversight; flexibility and consistency. On this 10th anniversary of the Supreme Court of Canada's watershed decision in Dunsmuir v. New Brunswick, join us as we check in on the evolving law of standard of review, and attempts to enhance procedural and substantive consistency in administrative decision-making. Our expert faculty will get you up to speed on the latest developments, and provide insights on opportunities for improvement.
