For his legal focus, Mancini is particularly interested in the law governing delegated state actors—administrative law. The legal questions that interest him include, how do we hold the government to account in an ever-complex society? And, what is the role and function of courts in interpreting and subjecting themselves to the law? Mancini believes these questions are increasingly important in a world where institutions must justify the exercises of their power in order for the public to respect them. In addition to this, he is interested in the role of institutions and the law in mediating conflict in pluralistic, liberal societies.

Mancini’s work was has been recently cited by the Supreme Court of Canada in decision in York Region District School Board v Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario, 2024 SCC 22 at [66].

He is also a prolific Administrative Law commentator, writing a weekly newsletter, The Sunday Evening Administrative Review, which is read by close to 1,500 lawyers, students and judges.

In his spare time, Mancini is a jazz saxophone player. He minored in music during his undergraduate degree and performed in several local groups over the years. Mancini also enjoys watching combat sports, particularly boxing and MMA. He has a dachshund, Hugo, who he and his wife often take for walks in Kenna Cartwright Nature Park.

“My wife and I are loving Kamloops so far,” says Mancini. “I am from Northern Ontario, so the weather is a welcome change. But the community is very similar to where I am from – close-knit and welcoming. I also particularly appreciate the TRU Law community. Not every school has such a supportive, collegial environment for faculty. I am looking forward to meeting and teaching the students as well, who are doing great things in BC and beyond.”
