Administrative Law Update 2022 – June 13, 2022

This webinar will be recorded and available to registered participants.

Back by popular demand! It’s time again for CCAT’s annual Admin Law Update.

Join David Wright, Michelle Flaherty and Margaret Leighton for an engaging and informative review of key developments and decisions from Canadian courts and tribunals. We will consider issues facing all of us in the administrative justice community like:

  • Resuming in-person hearings post-pandemic.
  • Walking the line between fairness and access with self-represented litigants.
  • Understanding the constitutional limits on jurisdiction of statutory decision makers.
  • Timeliness and delay in administrative proceedings.
  • Bilingualism and minority language rights.

And it wouldn’t be an admin law update without a few minutes on standard of review. Are the courts correct on correctness? Come ready to participate with questions and comments.

This will be a bilingual session. Simultaneous interpretation will be available.

Panelists:

  • David Wright, Chair, Ontario Physicians and Surgeons Discipline Tribunal
  • Michelle Flaherty, Mediator and Arbitrator

Quality Decision Making: How Your Brain May Get in Your Way and Some Tips to Clear the Path – Part 1: September 12, 2022 / Part 2: October 6, 2022

Adjudicators and judges are dedicated to making the best decision possible, applying relevant legal standards to the evidence they receive.  But over the past 15 years important developments in cognitive science have come to the attention of legal decision-makers, leading to growing insight into how our brains may sometimes get in our way. These webinars will explore some of that science, examine how researchers have investigated its application to judges and adjudicators, and share best practices to strengthen decision making and nurture impartiality and consistency.  You will have a chance to test some of the science yourselves through a series of interactive exercises and debriefs.

The workshop will be delivered in two parts. Part 1 (September 12) will explore the basics of cognition, including cognitive bias. Part 2 (October 6) will focus on the concept of “noise” in decision making. Noise refers to the many extraneous factors that can knowingly and unknowingly lead to inconsistency and inaccuracy in decision making.  It is the subject of a new book by Daniel Kanneman, Olivier Sibony and Cass Sunstein. We will explore the concept of “decision hygiene” and how it might be applied in administrative tribunals. Attend either or both parts.

Simultaneous interpretation will be available.

This webinar will be recorded and available to registered participants. 

When:

Part 1 – September 12, 2022; 1:00 p.m. (Eastern Time)
Part 2 – October 6, 2022; 1:00 p.m. (Eastern Time)

EQUALITY AND ANTI-OPPRESSION FOR ADJUDICATORS - Postponed until later in 2022

NOTE:  The Equity and Anti-Oppression for Adjudicators workshop series scheduled for March 11 and April 1, 2022 has been postponed until later in 2022.  Information on the new dates will be available soon.

Equality and Anti-Oppression for Adjudicators

This two-part webinar series will give you tools to combat implicit bias and prejudice in tribunal proceedings. Part one will be an introduction to white privilege, white supremacy and racism.  Part two will focus on what you can do to address unconscious bias, racism and oppression in your work as a tribunal administrator, counsel or adjudicator.  Choose to attend one or both parts.

Part I: Anti-Oppression Introduction
The anti-oppression workshop provides a space where participants will be engaged in discussions on white privilege in the context of white supremacy and colonization, understanding racial trauma and how it is perpetuated, conversations on intersectionality and how various marginalized identities (e.g., gender, ability, class, sexual orientation, etc.) intersect to create unique experiences of oppression, and an exploration of ways to reduce unconscious bias and white privilege in the workplace. Through the use of role-playing, exercise methods of enacting allyship will be presented and practiced. The workshop will be highly interactive and participants are asked to be open to challenging their own ways of thinking. As facilitators we promise to give participants space, within reason, to explore difficult questions and concepts. (Note: This does not include the space to debate anyone’s human rights or humanity).

Presenters:
Sobia Ali-Faisal, Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Prince Edward Island
Dante Bazard, Anti-Racism Policy Advisor, Government of Prince Edward Island

Part II: Equality in Tribunals
This workshop will apply anti-oppression and cultural competence principles to the practice of tribunal administration and adjudication, with a particular focus on addressing reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, race and disability. A significant part of the program will be group discussion of scenarios drawn from the administrative justice world.

Presenters:
Sobia Ali-Faisal, Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Prince Edward Island
Dante Bazard, Anti-Racism Policy Advisor, Government of Prince Edward Island
Her Worship Justice of the Peace Marisha Roman, Ontario
