Community Legal Assistance Society - BC Judicial Review Self-Help Guide


It can sometimes make sense to negotiate with your opposing party in order to reach an outcome that will be more favorable to you. Negotiation can also help you save some time, money and effort. For more information about negotiation, visit to learn about how you can prepare for a tough talk.

Please note that negotiation is not a substitute for judicial review and does not stop your deadline for judicial review. If you want to keep the option of judicial review open, you are still responsible for meeting the deadline for filing a judicial review.
