ANNOUNCING THE LATEST UPDATE TO THE BRITISH COLUMBIA
ADMINISTRATIVE LAW PRACTICE MANUAL
At long last, CLEBC has updated its British Columbia Administrative Law
Practice Manual, with a varied roster of energetic and knowledgeable contributors
from the bench and bar, all of whom have extensive experience in
this specialized practice area.
There has been a sea change in administrative law post-Vavilov, so extensive
that this is almost like a new publication. The first half of the manual
canvasses administrative law at the level of tribunals and other administrative
decision makers in British Columbia and at the federal level. The second
half is devoted to practice and jurisprudence in the B.C. Supreme Court
and the Federal Court on judicial reviews, stated cases and appeals.
This publication also contains a chapter devoted to appeals from judicial
review. Costs, remedies and interlocutory practice are comprehensively
addressed, as is dealing with self-represented parties. A new collection of
litigation documents based on fictitious fact patterns is offered with annotations
to illustrate the principles discussed in the chapters.
