Product description

Administrative Appeals Tribunal is for practitioners, migration agents, tribunal members, government decision-makers and others requiring a detailed yet accessible, treatment of the practice and procedure of the AAT. It is also a valuable resource for government departments and associated bodies and welfare organisations. Since an understanding of the AAT and similar tribunals is a significant aspect of the study of administrative law and government decision-making, Administrative Appeals Tribunal likewise provides a vital research tool for students of those areas.

Written by Australia’s leading authority on the work of the AAT, this book provides a detailed exposition of the jurisprudence of the AAT. It constitutes a clear, comprehensive treatment of the organisation, its jurisdiction and its procedures and provides essential guidance to anyone who is applying to, or appearing before, the Tribunal.


• Includes commentary on the changes made to the AAT’s procedures as a result of the amalgamation of the Migration Review Tribunal, the Refugee Review Tribunal and the Social Security Appeals Tribunal with the AAT
• Notes and comments on the numerous decisions of the AAT, the Federal Circuit Court and the Federal Court relating to the practice and procedure of the AAT and the amalgamated tribunals
