Courts and Tribunals Legislation Amendment (2021 Measures No. 1) Bill 2021
The submission to the Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee in response to its inquiry into the Courts and Tribunals Legislation Amendment (2021 Measures No. 1) Bill 2021 (Cth) (Bill) was prepared by the Law Council of Australia.
The Bill introduces a number of administrative amendments across a range of legislation related to Australia’s federal courts and tribunals. The Law Council is generally supportive of the measures proposed in the Bill and considers that the proposed measures will be of some benefit in improving and clarifying several processes in the federal courts and the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).
