Merits Review of Governmental Decision Making: Principles, Theory and Practice

  • Cane, Peter (PI)

    Project: Research

    Project Details


    This project will significantly enhance the quality and impact of decisions by federal courts and tribunals and raise the level of public debates in areas such as immigration. The concept and practice of merits review is fundamental to legal regulation of government by federal courts and tribunals. In a society that subscribes to the rule of law as a core value, accurate understanding of this concept and of the way knowledge about merits review is communicated to administrators is essential. It will help eliminate inefficient and costly uncertainty and misunderstanding about what the law requires, and make a significant contribution to protecting the rights of individuals.
