Since the first edition of this book was published in 2008, administrative law in Canada has evolved considerably, due in part to a number of recent Supreme Court of Canada decisions.

In particular, this volume offers an explanation of: the theoretical foundations of judicial review and how they are supported by the constitution; the powers of administrative decision-makers; why and under what circumstances decision-makers determine both constitutional and jurisdictional issues; the standard of review; fairness; bias; and procedural issues.

As Canada continues to expand its corporate presence overseas, so too, has the need to legislate and enforce anti-corruption rules against the bribery of foreign officials by Canadian companies and their officers.

This book helps lawyers and in-house counsel understand the gravity of these laws: infringement can result in prosecution, hefty fines and even imprisonment. Written in an informative and yet readable manner, this international law book focuses on relevant sections of the Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act (CFPOA), and how to ensure compliance. It offers a detailed section-by-section review of the legislation, so that lawyers will know how to advise their clients in staying clear of CFPOA offences.
