Practice, Procedure and Substance in the AAT’s NDIS Division

21/10/2020

Webinar - Monday 26 October

The Disability Panel of the NSW Bar Association invites members to join a webinar titled "Practice, Procedure and Substance in the AAT’s NDIS Division" on Monday 26 October at 5.15 pm.

The NDIS Division of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal is an important legal forum for people with disability seeking access to the scheme. The AAT currently hears about 900 cases a year in that division, and counsel play an important role in safeguarding the rights of applicants and helping to ensure that the correct and preferable decision is made.

Join Senior Member Fiona Meagher of the AAT’s NDIS Division, Thomas Liu of 7 Wentworth Selborne Chambers, and Christine Halls and Chris Herscovitch, both senior legal officers of the National Disability Insurance Agency, to discuss key issues that arise in cases in the AAT’s NDIS division, and how counsel can do more to assist the Tribunal in those cases. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions via Zoom.

The webinar is open to NSW Bar Association members and will be run by registration only. Numbers are limited. For further information, or to register for this event, please click here.
