Administrative law is an attempt to speed up the legal process by resolving issues without having to go before a judge. There are 76 different administrative justice agencies in British Columbia and their decisions can affect the rest of your life just as profoundly as if a judge or a jury were to hear your case. Our Administrative Lawyers in Kamloops know how to work within this system on your behalf.
The Workers’ Compensation Board is an example of one of these agencies. The Mental Health Review Panel, the Environmental Appeal Board, and the Human Rights Commission are other examples. Other subject areas include financial and investment matters, building and construction safety, social benefits and agriculture.
Administrative law can be complicated due to the nature of the detailed rules of procedure applied by the various administrative tribunals. Our lawyers are experienced in working within the rules and regulations of administrative tribunals and the procedural complications that may be involved.
