Course Outline:

This is an intermediate level course on procedural impropriety as grounds for judicial review.  It will explore five main contexts in which procedural impropriety features.

  1. Deviation from, or failure to observe, statutory procedure: how is this defined, and what are the consequences of non-compliance?
  2. The right to a hearing: is there such a right at common law, and when might that right be activated?
  3. The right to representation: is there a right at common law to be represented, and when might that right be activated?
  4. The duty to give reasons for decisions: is there such a duty at common law, and if so, when (and how) does it apply? When reasons must be given, what are the legal requirements on the adequacy of reasons?
  5. Bias: what circumstances can (and cannot) give rise to bias, how is bias defined, and what are the consequences of insufficient impartiality on the part of a decision-maker? When might bias be “excused”?
We will explore the main principles, rules, legal tests and case law applying to each of these categories of procedural impropriety.

Contents:

  • Deviation from, or failure to observe, statutory procedure
