The past year has seen a considerable number of administrative law decisions. Most of the significant decisions have come in the area of standards of review, a concept which is continuing to attract judges’ attention, discussion and disagreement. Another important development is whether a delegate’s requirement to give reasons for its decision is a stand-alone ground for judicial review. In addition, there are a number of decisions dealing with procedural fairness, multiple forums, standing, and other important administrative law issues.
