Administrative Law is the body of law that regulates the operation and procedures of government departments and agencies.  This means that if a government agency has made a decision that affects you, there are legal processes that they should have followed in making that decision.

If you disagree with a decision of the Australian Government, Trusted Lawyers will look at your individual circumstances and advise you if you have reasonable grounds to appeal that decision. If so, we can assist with your appeal.  Appeals may be to courts, tribunals, an Ombudsman or to the deciding agency.

Examples of administrative decisions are:

  • refusal of a visa
  • rejection / cancellation of a Centrelink payment
  • imposing conditions on a licence
  • refusing the grant of a financial licence

For more information about appeals, see the Judicial and Merits Review sections.
