Congratulations to former LCO student researcher, Jesse Beatson! Jesse won the 2018 Council of Canadian Administrative Tribunals’ Student Essay Contest, for his essay, “Imagining Algorithms in the Tribunal Context: What are they, and would they cause problems for legality, procedural fairness and judicial oversight?”

Jesse’s essay builds on some research work he did for the LCO’s forthcoming Law and Technology project, as a student researcher from May 2017 until April 2018. The essay will be published in the Canadian Journal of Administrative law and Practice in the fall.

The Council of Canadian Administrative Tribunals (CCAT) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to promoting excellence in administrative justice. The contest’s goal is to engage law students in the work of the CCAT and administrative tribunal community and to promote scholarship concerning the administrative justice system.

Congratulations, Jesse!
