The BCCAT conference is where influential tribunal leaders, lawyers, politicians, scholars, and practitioners come together to share information and insights about changes and trends affecting tribunals.

Each Conference session is anchored in the experience of todays tribunal; what tribunal chairs, managers, and members face each day and how knowledge about the changes and research about the changes can open the lines of dialogue ensuring that tribunals and participants in the administrative justice system remain up-to-date with today’s landscape of administrative law.
