Did you know there are approximately 3000 people living in Queensland who arrived by boat and are attempting to apply for protection in Australia?
Their attempts are being frustrated by a limited merits review process which does not provide for a hearing in person. Therefore it is imperative that applicants have the ability to access judicial review proceedings to ensure that the decision making procedures are appropriately applied and fair.
Prof. Simon Young will provide a concise and practical overview of how to identify judicial review grounds in matters involving refugees and asylum seekers.
