OBA Annual Update on Judicial Review: Wednesday in Toronto/via Webcast
Blogging is likely to be light for the next couple of weeks, as my list of speaking engagements implies. There is also the small matter of a graduation ceremony on November 2 for which my office is responsible, as well as the usual array of administrative and writing commitments.
If you have not already registered for the OBA Annual Update on Judicial Review this Wednesday, where I will join Stratas J.A. on the stage, you can do so here. There is a dinner followed by 90 minutes of discussion. Note that the event is also webcast for those not in the Toronto area: details are here. The untimely end to the Blue Jays’ season has a silver lining. Game two would otherwise have clashed with this event. Here is the outline for our discussion (though in previous years we have ranged far and wide):
Standard of Review Analysis (PD lead, DS response)
Categories and Context
The Return of Correctness?
The Return of Context?
Judicial Review Methodologies (DS lead, PD response)

Adjectival/Procedural Issues (PD lead, DS response)
Content of the Record
