Australian Institute of Administrative Law (SA Chapter)


The Spectrum of Deference – how courts defer to decision makers in judicial review proceedings

Holly Stanley, Edmund Barton Chambers
Australian Government Solicitor

Barossa Room, Level 5 101 Pirie Street, Adelaide

Wednesday, 6 September 2017

1.00 pm to 2.00 pm

From Merits Review to the American Style of Chevron Deference, Holly will discuss the ways in which courts defer to administrative decision makers. Traversing the wilds of jurisdictional fact, reasonableness and proportionality, Holly looks at the way in which courts manage the difficult divide between merit and judicial review, and questions whether we are headed to a more uniform analytical framework of deference.

Holly spent almost 10 years at the Crown Solicitors Office working in a variety of fields including civil, administrative and commercial law. Holly commenced at the independent bar at the beginning of 2017, practising out of Edmund Barton Chambers. She accepts briefs in variety of areas and has a particular interest in administrative and public law.
