Discretion is the power or right to make official decisions using reason and judgment to choose from among acceptable alternatives.

This seminar will deal with some aspects of the discretionary decision making:

· What types of applications are involved in discretionary decision making?

· How is discretion exercised?

· What is meant by “reasonable”?

· How to prepare submissions for discretionary decision making?

Decisions in complex and controversial policy areas are often left to civil servants. As a result, civil servants use their discretionary power to make decisions that will likely have important consequences for society. This is the case with immigration
