WHAT IS ADMINISTRATIVE LAW?
For present purposes, administrative law is concerned with reviewing decisions made by the executive arm of government:
The people who make decisions on behalf of government (decision-makers) are:
- The Minister responsible (e.g. the Minister for Immigration and Border Control)
- The Minister’s delegate (including officers of the department)
- Independent tribunals created under an Act of Parliament such as the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT)
OUR ADMINISTRATIVE LAW AREAS
Our firm specialises in the review of decisions made in relation to:
- REFUGEES & HUMANITARIAN VISAS

What is common to these areas is that they all involve immigration and migrants. A person who wishes to enter Australia legally must be granted a visa. The visa may be temporary or permanent. Once in Australia, a person on a temporary visa may be granted a permanent visa, entitling the person to reside permanently in Australia. A person who holds a permanent residence visa may be granted citizenship. This also applies to refugees and those accepted into Australia on humanitarian grounds.
We already provide services in relation to visa applications and citizenship decisions.
Our lawyers are especially passionate about refugees and those seeking protection on humanitarian grounds.
