This module introduces you to an area of law that is concerned with the actions and operations of government and governmental bodies in Canada. Administrative law addresses the manner in which Courts can review the decision of administrative bodies who exercise power that has been granted to them through statute. You will be introduced to the core elements of administrative law doctrine, including how cases reviewed by the Courts are evaluated based on whether they contain any substantive errors (errors of law) and whether they were procedurally fair
