In 2015 the significant step was taken of amalgamating the Migration Review Tribunal (MRT), the Refugee Review Tribunal (RRT) and the Social Security Appeals Tribunal (SSAT) with the AAT. Persons who formerly applied to or practised before these tribunals now need to adapt their activities to the practice and procedure of the AAT.
This fourth edition of the book includes commentary on the legislative changes made to bring the MRT, RRT and SSAT within the AAT. It also notes and comments on the numerous decisions of the AAT and the Federal Court relating to the practice and procedure of the AAT and the amalgamated tribunals.
