The Advanced Administrative Law & Practice Virtual Conference – The Canadian Institute

Speakers: John Buhlman

Partner John Buhlman will be speaking at the 20th Annual Advanced Administrative Law & Practice Virtual Conference taking place on Wednesday, October 28 & Thursday, October 29, 2020, with a post conference workshop on Friday, October 30, 2020.

The conference aims to help you make sense of developments in administrative law, understand how you are affected, and make your decision-making as resistant as possible to fierce judicial review.

John’s session will explore the changes to the Vavilov standard of review for statutory appeals from reasonableness to correctness, specifically:

  • Standard of review of arbitral awards prior to Vavilov on appeal and motions to set aside an award
  • How lower courts have been interpreting the Supreme Court’s position on this issue, and how they have justified their presumption of reasonableness or correctness
  • Limitations on court intervention in arbitral decisions under domestic and international arbitration acts in the provinces, and whether these limitations survive Vavilov
  • Practical implications of decreased judicial deference towards arbitration boards for the administration of justice
