“Wonderful presenters, great content, and bountiful hospitality. Hope to make it an annual tradition.”

Administrative law is changing rapidly and administrative lawyers and decision-makers are facing more demands than ever before.

Are you on top of the latest developments and key cases?

This celebrated annual forum returns for its fifteenth year, with an expert faculty providing useful and timely insights across all issues and sectors of administrative law as they stand at October 2020. Anticipated topics include:

  • Administrative law and decision-making in times of public health emergencies and other contexts requiring rapid response
  • Bias thirty years after Consolidated Bathurst—when can agency leaders, internal counsel, agency members, and other advisors participate in tribunal decision-making?
  • Pressing fairness issues and developments, including cultural sensitivity and diversity, evidentiary issues in tribunal proceedings, and the use of novel technologies in administrative processes
  • Further analysis of the impact of the Supreme Court’s monumental decision in Vavilov/Bell and new developments in the law governing judicial review 

All delegates will receive 90-day access to the program archive, and searchable, downloadable materials.  Group discounts and financial assistance are available.
