Presentation – 60 minutes
Question & Answer – 30 minutes
When parties challenge tribunal decisions by judicial review or appeals, courts are more and more emphasizing the need for decision-makers to provide adequate reasons. Courts are insisting that the tribunal clearly articulate the rationale underlying their decisions. This includes the path the tribunal takes to get to its ultimate conclusion in the case as well as the ultimate decision.
In this Webinar, the presenters will:
- Provide you with guidance on what the courts are saying about the importance of providing good reasons for decision;
- Help you to understand where good reasons for decision fit within the framework of administrative law; and
- Provide you with tips and tricks to help you to formulate your reasons in an understandable, defensible way.
