Australian Institute of Administrative Law

Webinar on Unreasonableness with Amelia Wheatley QC and Ben McGlade, chaired by Greenwood J

9 Jun

Late afternoon Webinar


Presenters: Ms Amelia Wheatley QC & Mr Ben McGlade

Chair: The Hon Justice Andrew Greenwood

Some still see the concept of “unreasonableness” applying without much analysis in applications coming before the Courts. In this presentation, Ms Wheatley QC and Mr McGlade seek to bring order and rigour to the concept, discussing recent cases and what an applicant must seek to establish to have “reasonable” prospects of success.

Amelia Wheatley QC practices principally in public law, with a particular focus on administrative law (predominately judicial review) and revenue matters. She also has a broader commercial and insolvency litigation practice.

Ben McGlade was first called to the bar in 2010. He practices in commercial and administrative law. He has particular expertise and experience in the area of judicial review having extensively appeared both for and against government departments in respect of such matters.

The Hon Justice Greenwood was appointed to the Federal Court of Australia in 2005. He is now President of the Copyright Tribunal (having been a member for some years). He is also a Presidential member of the AAT, and Deputy President of the Australian Competition Tribunal.
