ANU College of Law Emeritus Professor Dennis Pearce AO's new book: Administrative Appeals Tribunal, 3rd edition has been published by Lexis Nexis.
The use of tribunals to review the merits of government decisions is now an established part of Australia's system of government. The first, and still most significant, of these tribunals is the Commonwealth Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).
Professor Pearce's book is an essential work for practitioners, tribunal members, government decision-makers and others requiring a detailed yet accessible, treatment of the practice and procedure of the AAT.
Te book is a valuable resource for government departments and associated bodies and welfare organisations.
Since an understanding of the AAT and like tribunals is a significant aspect of the study of administrative law and government decision-making, the book provides a vital research tool for students of those areas.
