This book will be of interest to administrative law lawyers, and judges; politicians and bureaucrats; tribunal chairs and tribunal members; and legal scholars, law teachers, and students. It should also be of interest to the general public who may be surprised to learn that their everyday legal rights are more often decided by the flawed judicial tribunals described in this book, than by the courts.
Ron Ellis is an administrative law lawyer, teacher, academic, arbitrator, and former chair and CEO of a major administrative judicial tribunal. He has been teaching, speaking, and writing about administrative justice system issues for more than thirty years.
