JSGS 809
Introduction to Law in Public Administration and Policy

This course examines the law governing the relationship between government (ministers, the civil service, government boards and agencies), on the one hand, and the public on the other. Procedures for decision-making, the limits of executive power and how those limits are enforced by the courts through judicial review, the independence and impartiality of government decision-makers, and the impact of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms on the way in which public administrators carry out their duties, will all be considered.
