Federal Courts

Appeals to the Federal Courts

These decisions can also be reviewed right up to the level of the High Court of Australia.

We at Australink Alliance have extensive experience in reviews at all levels in this jurisdiction and will be able to initially assess the prospects of your success and if there are grounds of appeal, to represent you in the appeal.

In some cases the Tribunal Member, whether under the MRT, RRT or the AAT may have made a decision incorrectly interpreting the law or mad a jurisdictional error in coming to hi or her decision.

In such cases, the applicant has a right of appeal initially to the Federal Magistrates Court to have that decision reviewed.

If the appeal is unsuccessful successful at the Federal Magistrates Court their may be grounds for the applicant may request the Federal Court of Australia review the decision of the Federal Magistrates Court and once again a negative decision out of that court can be reviewed by the Full Court of the Federal Court and ultimately by leave of the High Court the decision can be determined by the High Court of Australia.

In some cases there may be procedural unfairness and therefore an application for review can be made based on the Judicial Review Act where the tribunal body or the decision maker had in some way reached the decision by procedural error to enable the applicant to have the benefit of procedures in place.
