The Administrative Law Clinic is a joint project of QPILCH and Bond University to provide free legal services to people seeking assistance challenging government decisions. The Administrative Law Clinic is staffed by senior law students under the supervision of an experienced lawyer.
The Clinic provides legal advice and extended minor assistance in administrative law matters with a focus on:
- judicial review of State and Federal Government decisions;
- matters before the Administrative Appeals Tribunal; and
- matters before the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal.
The Clinic also considers requests for assistance in relation to internal review of government decisions, right to information matters, and matters before the Social Security Appeals Tribunal where other services cannot assist.
Legal assistance that may be provided includes:
- advice and opinions;
- drafting documents (including court documents, tribunal forms and submissions);
- conducting research;
- advocating for legislative reform; and
- undertaking community education.
We do not provide legal representation. It may be that your matter is eligible for referral to a private legal practitioner under QPILCH's core referral services or you are capable of self representing. If this is the case, we will contact you to discuss your options.
How to Apply
In order to receive assistance, applicants must complete the QPILCH application form and send to QPILCH by post, fax or email (see details at bottom of page).
The Clinic runs Fridays only, during University semester.
