Event description


Immigration Law Review 6

Join us for in depth analysis and discussion of immigration law developments.

Morning - Review of legislative changes and caselaw developments

The morning seminar will provide detailed consideration of legislative changes in the immigration portfolio from April 2017 to November 2017, including:

- changes to skilled migration requirements;

- expansion of SHEV pathways; and

- amendments to the offshore humanitarian program.

We will also discuss the Australian Citizenship Bill 2017 and its Parliamentary Inquiry.

In addition, we will provide caselaw analysis of recent decisions of the High Court, Federal Court and Federal Circuit Court of Australia and reflect upon developments in judicial review.

Afternoon – Shining light on immigration decisions

- Do you understand the role of computers in immigration decision-making?

- Do you know how to challenge a decision based upon protected information?

- Have any of your clients received a health assessment without reasons?

Our afternoon session will shed light on how decisions are being made in the immigration portfolio and consider the ways in which lawyers can advocate for transparency.

We will consider the legal framework underpinning computer assisted decision-making and examine the extent to which decision-making power can be delegated to computers.

This session will consider the legal frameworks best suited to an increased reliance upon computer aided decision making and the grounds of judicial review best suited to challenging such decisions.

We will also undertake a detailed examination of the High Court’s recent judgment, Graham v Minister for Immigration and Border Protection [2017] HCA 33, concerned with review of a Ministerial decision based upon protected information.
