Administrative Law on the Edge
Thursday 16 and Friday 17 July 2020
RACV City Club 501 Bourke Street, Melbourne Victoria
The AIAL National Administrative Law Conference is Australia’s pre-eminent administrative law conference, having been held each year since 1991.
The aim of the Conference is to provide those involved or interested in Australian administrative law with the opportunity to discuss contemporary issues, share practical experiences and consider future developments. The 2020 Conference will be hosted by the Victorian Chapter of the Institute.
THE 2020 NATIONAL CONFERENCE THEME
It is proposed that the overarching theme for the 2020 AIAL National Administrative Law Conference will be Administrative Law on the Edge.
At this conference we intend to explore the many-faceted ‘edges’ of administrative law. We particularly note the following relevant sub-themes:
intersecting areas of law and other areas of knowledge, for example, the law of interpretation and constitutional law the nature of any 'boundary lines' of administrative law the metes and bounds of jurisdictional error the capacity of civil and administrative tribunals to deliver administrative justice, having regard to the original intent of providing fast, low cost efficient reviews the scope to challenge the exercise of non-statutory executive power whether the performance of government functions that are ‘outsourced’ is outside administrative law bounds the scope to challenge automated ‘decision-making’.
The Institute encourages contributions on these sub-themes, but is also interested in finding space for those with other perspectives or ideas on the Conference theme.
The Conference will provide a stimulating mixture of activities, combining practical sessions with reflective and thought-provoking presentations. The Conference will canvass administrative law in the Commonwealth, States and Territories.
