Judicial Reviews

A Judicial Review is a legal process that take place at the Supreme Court of BC. In this type of review, a sitting Supreme Court Judge will review a decision that has been made by an administrative tribunal or an administrative decision maker. A Judicial Review is not a re-trial or rehearing of your case. The judge does not focus on whether they would have made a different decision than that of the original decision maker. Instead, the judge focuses on determining whether the decision maker had the authority to make a particular decision and whether the decision maker exercised that authority. The Supreme Court judge may also be asked to review the interpretation and application of legislation to a matter.
