This webinar was presented on September 12, 2019.
Anyone acting on behalf of the \”state\” is governed by administrative law. This includes those conferring a benefit (e.g., registration, compensation fund), performing an investigation, resolving a dispute (e.g., of a complaint) or conducting a hearing (e.g., discipline).
Using the processes mentioned in the Surveyors Act, award winning regulatory lawyer Richard Steinecke will go through the principles of administrative law (i.e., acting within jurisdiction, using fair procedures, making reasonable decisions). Attendees will have opportunities to apply those principles through the many scenarios used during the presentation.
