  • Exploring Electronic Resources : British Columbia Administrative Law Practice Manual

    by Lesley Dobin | Oct 20, 2016

    This is the weekly look at one of the many valuable online legal information resources available when you visit the Courthouse Libraries of BC. Today we’re looking at the British Columbia Administrative Law Practice Manual.

    Available as part of the CLEBC Practice Manuals collection, the British Columbia Administrative Law Practice Manual is intended for all levels of administrative law practice, administrative law decision makers, and judges in superior and federal courts.

    Some highlights from the most recent update include:

    • standard of review applicable to administrative officers; entitlement of tribunals to deference in interpreting home statute: developing Supreme Court of Canada jurisprudence
    • powers of tribunals to reconsider their own decisions
    • which decisions are reviewable in cases where there has been reconsideration
    • First Nations as administrative law decision-makers (“federal board, commission or other tribunal”; applicability of Judical Review Procedure Act)
    • imminent tribunal “clustering” in British Columbia; effect on impartiality and independence
    • new annotated sample petitions for judicial review in Supreme Court of British Columbia
    • amended Federal Courts Practice Directions

    Online access allows for easy keyword searching, while hyperlinks provide quick access to full text case law and legislation.

    When you are next in the library performing research or borrowing material, don’t forget to explore the resources online and check back here every week, to learn more about the electronic resources available on-site at any location of Courthouse Libraries BC.
