The Annotated British Columbia Administrative Tribunals Act
Availability: In Stock
$80.00
Description
This is an extensive annotation of British Columbia’s new groundbreaking administrative law statute. Applicable to a broad universe of agencies, each section of the legislation is set out and accompanied by expansive explanatory commentary discussing the meaning and operation of the section itself, its interaction with other provisions of the statute and the general common law. This commentary will be particularly useful in the early days of the statute where there are few judicial and agency interpretations available.
