On December 19, 2019, the Supreme Court released its decision in Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration) v Vavilov, 2019 SCC 65, an important decision which re-casts many fundamental principles of administrative law and the law of judicial review in Canada. Join our expert panel as they discuss the impact of this new standard of review in IP law: 

·      When does administrative law arise for IP lawyers? 

·      What does Vavilov change (and not change)?  

·      Are judicial reviews from the Copyright Board still a “special case”? 

·      Does Vavilov have an impact on the proceedings challenging the new pricing regulations for patented medicines?
