How Do I Tender That? Getting Evidence Before The Court

The Common Law Bar Association

Jurisdictional error after SZVFW, TTY167, Hossain and Shrestha

The Victorian Bar and The Australian Association of Constitutional Law
12Dec

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
In August, the High Court delivered three significant judgments dealing with judicial review.  The judgments concern the relationship between appellate review and legal unreasonableness (Minister v SZVFW; and, in the last week, TTY167) and the extent to which an error must be material in order to be “jurisdictional” (Hossain and Shrestha).  They are likely to have significant implications for Australian public law, both in theory and in practice.

This seminar will be open to all legal professionals.
