Administrative Law in Alberta
Administrative Law deals decisions of government, both Provincial and Federal. Practically, governments delegate much of their day to day administrative decision making power to agencies, boards, and commissions. Administrative law deals with these delegated decision making bodies.

Often for these delegated bodies (such as professional disciplinary bodies, WCB claims, Human Rights complaints, Privacy Complaints, Ombudsman complaints) , the rules of the original tribunal have to be followed, and all internal appeals exhausted before an appeal to the courts is possible.
The courts will look at only a limited scope in an appeal: was the hearing fair? Was there notice? Was there bias? The answers to those questions will turn upon the specific type of tribunal from which you are appealing.
