Administrative, Constitutional and Migration Law

2015/16 Annual Report

The Administrative, Constitutional and Migration Law Committee during 2015/16 met jointly with the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Committee, and contributed to the development of the Law Society’s policy papers with a mix of human rights and administrative law elements, including a proposal to establish a National Integrity Commission.

The Committee contributed to a Law Society submission to the Legislative Council supporting the demise of the Crown Statute.

The Committee maintained a liaison with the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, through membership of its Users’ Group, and with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (which became the Department of Immigration and Border Protection), through membership of its Reference Group.

The Committee also endeavoured to maintain a liaison with the Australian Institute of Administrative Law and the Migration Institute of Australia.
