Public and Administrative Law Committee

The co-convenors of the Public and Administrative Law Committee are CLA Council members Trudi Pye (Canada) and Ron Heinrich (Australia).

The co-convenors invite CLA members to join this committee which is focused on representing  members on policy and practice  issues arising in relation to public law matters, including constitutional law, administrative law, the rule of law, the principles of representative and responsible government, the role of Attorneys General, the separation of powers and government accountability. The Committee will facilitate this through exchanging views and knowledge, developing policy positions, undertaking special projects, and advising the President and Council on public law matters.

CLA members are encouraged to read the Committee’s Terms of Reference and email to join this committee which meets every two months.
