Judicial Review

Pro Bono Judicial Review Training

On 23 January 2018 Dr Stephen Tully, together with Nicholas Poynder of Frederick Jordan Chambers, Laura Free of Victoria Legal Aid, David Burke of Lander and Rogers Lawyers and Nadine Darling from the Refugee Advice & Casework Service (RACS), conducted a workshop on the judicial review of fast track decision-making by the Immigration Assessment Authority. Attended by some 27 solicitors and barristers, the workshop was the final step in an online programme established in Victoria and now made available in NSW. The training complements a current initiative of RACS - Justice for Refugees, or J4R – which engages barristers to advise on refugee matters and undertake judicial review applications before the Federal Circuit Court of Australia.
