2015: Recent Developments in Administrative Law

Although there haven’t been any seismic shifts in administrative law this past year, there have been quite a few decisions which are worthy of note. Many of these decisions continue to work out how to determine—and apply—the applicable standard of review. Others involve procedural fairness, standing, multiple forums and a host of other miscellaneous issues. In many of these decisions, there is a growing recognition of the courts’ role in ensuring the legality of administrative decisions.
