Case Preparation at the AAT – Strategies, Techniques and What to Avoid When Representing Clients 

The AAT reviews a wide range of decisions made under Commonwealth laws, including FOI Requests, Taxation, Workers Compensation, Child Support, Migration and Refugee decisions and the National Disability Insurance Scheme.  These decisions often affect disadvantaged and vulnerable people and the representation required of each individual can be unique and challenging.

This session will take you through key strategies and practical tips for preparing a Review at the AAT. You will also be guided on the do’s and don’ts when representing your client more generally in this jurisdiction.

Including a case update, this is a unique opportunity not to be missed.

  • Proper basis for appeal;
  • Likelihood of Final or Interlocutory Appeals;
  • Relevant timelines;
  • Drafting essential documents for appeal process;
  • Costs consequences for parties;
