NCA Candidates – Exam Warning


Re Administrative Law Syllabus effective for May 2020

Please note the following when preparing for any future Administrative Law exams.
Re Section 11.The Vavilov Tests for Standard of Review Selection and Application:

When it comes to an examination, if selecting the standard of review arises on the facts, you do need to consider the applicable approach, as formulated in Vavilov and Bell Canada. The contextual, four-factor standard of review analysis, as refined in Dunsmuir and its progeny, is no longer good law and will not serve as the basis of an acceptable response. On the exam, no marks will be awarded for an answer relying on this now-superseded caselaw.
