Administrative Law: Principles and Advocacy, 3rd Edition helps paralegals, law clerks, and legal professionals review the procedures they will need to know in order to prepare and successfully argue cases before administrative tribunals.

This text provides a comprehensive and practical look at the principles and practices of administrative law. Administrative law principles, such as the right to be heard and the duty to give reasons, are made simple with straightforward language and practical examples. Both adjudicative and non-adjudicative decision-making procedures are discussed thoroughly.

The text describes the different functions, characteristics, and procedures of various key tribunals under municipal, provincial, and federal legislation.
