The print edition of Administrative Law in Context, 2nd Edition includes a PDF ebook. Look for your PIN code card inside the front cover. The PDF ebook is also available for purchase separately.

The second edition of the best-selling casebook Administrative Law in Context uses the same unique two-part format as the previous edition — a hardbound text supported by a website where both students and instructors can find full-text cases for each chapter.

Written and edited with the same quality and expertise as the first edition, which was referenced in the Supreme Court of Canada decision in Doré v. Barreau du Québec, the second edition of Administrative Law in Context is a collaborative work bringing together the varied perspectives of Canada's leading scholars in the field. Concentrating on the general principles of administrative law and the context in which administrative adjudication occurs, the authors convey a sense of how administrative boards and tribunals work in practice — for example, how decisions on budgets, staffing, websites, and translation can make the difference between justice and injustice, and how administrative law works differently in the politically charged context of public inquiries. In addition to critical analysis and theory provided by a team of leading academics, students are also given practical hands-on tips and checklists for those planning to practise administrative law.

The second edition is completely updated in all chapters to include reflections on Dunsmuir as well as jurisprudence in the wake of Dunsmuir. There is a new section and fuller discussion on procedural fairness, and new chapters on Aboriginal issues in administrative law and the Federal Court's administrative law process, demonstrating how administrative law is grounded in the real world of decision-making.

  • The online case law database is an ideal resource for both law students and practising lawyers.
  • Students and practitioners will benefit from the range of expertise and approaches, and gain a greater sense of the legislative and judicial environment of administrative decision making.
  • The casebook includes updates from the latest SCC decision in Doré v. Barreau du Québec, which made reference to Mary Liston's Chapter 4 from the first edition.
  • The coverage of procedural fairness has been enhanced and all the chapters have been revised to account for current developments.
  • The affordable price is sure to be embraced by today's cost-conscious student.
  • Both ebook and print versions are available.

Foreword

It is a pleasure and honour for me to continue my association with Administrative Law in Context by providing these remarks for its second edition. Two factors are especially important behind the appearance of a second edition. One is explained by the organic nature of the law, whether legislative or judicially inspired, in that it develops and changes rapidly and administrative law is no exception. The other factor is that the work in question merits a second edition as judged by the response to the first edition; as such this second edition is praiseful recognition for the editors and contributors who have toiled to produce this very helpful volume.

The second edition has retained all of the virtues of the first edition that I mentioned in my Foreword and indeed has added special attractions by the inclusion of new chapters on Aboriginal Administrative Law, and on the Federal Court and Administrative Law. As well, the editors and contributors have reordered many of the chapters, changed many of the titles, as well as updating the commentary that follows, and welcomed some new contributors into their scholarly midst. All of this with no loss in the coverage, caliber, utility or lucidity of the book. Put another way, the bottles, labelling, and packaging may have changed in some respects, but the wine tastes as good as ever, and some new vintages have been added!

I congratulate the editors and contributors for another excellent effort.

The Honourable Frank Iacobucci, C.C., Q.C.
