Administrative Law

Administrative law describes a set of rules and regulations that are used to make decisions and adjudicate disputes outside of traditional court processes.

Adjudicative bodies operate under a set of administrative law principles but also under their own unique rules and guidelines. Examples include the Human Rights Tribunal, Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal and the Immigration and Refugee Board.
