Course Description

Administrative Law is the body of law regulating the ways in which government operates. It is about the rules and limits that apply to not only the operations of the Crown, Cabinets, Ministers, government departments, and municipal corporations, but also the various administrative tribunals and agencies deployed by governments for the carrying out of governmental functions of all kinds. This course focuses on the circumstances under which government decision makers are subject to an obligation of procedural fairness, the content of that obligation, the extent to which substantive decision makers are subject to scrutiny by the courts in the name of jurisdiction or other principles of substantive review, and the remedial framework in which superior courts exercise their review powers, including monetary compensation for wrongful administrative action.
