Immigration Law Conference 2019

The Department of Immigration commenced in 1945. Since then its name has been altered several times, reflecting changing policy priorities, but always including ‘Immigration’ within the title until the most recent change to the Department of Home Affairs. 2018 commenced as the first year since 1945 that Australia has not had a Department of Immigration.

The Law Council’s 2019 CPD Immigration Law Conference will examine the contemporary priorities of the Department of Home Affairs and way in which these interact with the operation of the law. It focuses upon the changing priorities of the portfolio from a legal and policy perspective, including important topics such as law enforcement, cyber security, national security, processing delays and the impact of these priorities upon the way in which laws are crated and the administration of the law.
