Creative problem-solving and effective advocacy

This publication is essential for: counsel at all levels of administrative law practice, administrative law decision-makers, and judges in superior and federal courts.

The British Columbia Administrative Law Practice Manual provides a framework for lawyers who practice before and represent administrative law decision-makers in British Columbia, as well as decision-makers themselves and judges. This framework, along with helpful hyperlinks to legislation, case law, and other decisions, creates a unified resource for counsel in administrative law proceedings, judicial review, statutory appeals, and stated cases. The manual covers both federal and provincial decision-makers and proceedings in both federal and British Columbia superior courts. Lawyers will find practical advice on how to conduct themselves at all levels of representation, the roles of various parties, how to avoid common pitfalls, practice tips on effective advocacy and drafting, and dealing with unrepresented parties.
