The Ombudsman Comes to Alberta

  • Geoffrey Sawer


Once a state accepts the concept of an ombudsman the question arises: What are the appropriate statutory provisions for empowering and regulating such an office? Professor Sawer answers this question by comparing the Alberta and New Zealand statutes. He also suggests that Alberta Lawyers rearrange the Ombudsman's case reports under legal headings and then use them as precedents in future complaints to the Ombudsman.
