Administrative law is the area of law that regulates the decisions of government officials, bodies and departments. Armstrong Legal’s Brisbane Administrative Lawyers are an experienced and committed team that can help you with your administrative law needs.
Some administrative law matters are dealt with federally while others are state and territory-based. Federal administrative law encompasses immigration law, Centrelink matters and tax law, while Queensland-based administrative law includes appeals to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT), child protection and adoption matters, housing applications, and reviews of decisions to grant or refuse a Blue Card. It also covers workplace licensing decisions by bodies such as WorkSafe.
When a government body, official or department makes a decision that affects an individual, it is required to follow certain procedures such as according procedural fairness and giving the person the opportunity to respond to any evidence that may form the basis of an adverse decision against them. It is required to take into account relevant consideration and not to take into account irrelevant considerations. It is also required to make a decision that is within its powers. If you think a decision has been made that did not comply with the rules of administrative law, you may want to consider seeking a review of that decision. Strict time limits apply for seeking such a review so call our Brisbane Administrative Lawyers today.
