Ground Shift - What Does Vavilov and the New Standard of Review Mean for your Immigration Practice 

11 mars 2020
Toronto ON

OBA Citizenship & Immigration Law PROGRAM | 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM

On December 19, 2019, the Supreme Court of Canada released its decisions in a trilogy of cases, Vavilov, Bell Canada and NFL, rewriting the standard of review analysis set out in Dunsmuir. Our expert panel, including counsel for Mr. Vavilov and for Justice Canada before the Supreme Court of Canada, will unravel this new framework while focusing on the decisions’ impact on immigration law. Whether you are a litigator or focus on solicitor work, this session is for you. Gaining an understanding of the ramifications of this major shift long before the litigation stage is vital, since it will impact how you frame submissions to immigration officers and other administrative decision makers.

Join us and get up to speed on what the decisions mean for your immigration practice and your clients.
