VCAT- its Role and Responsibilities for Regional Victorians
Wednesday, 26 February 2014 from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM (EST)
VCAT- Role and Responsibilities
Since its inception in 1998, the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) has operated to provide Victorians with a low cost, accessible, efficient and independent tribunal delivering high quality dispute resolution.
But how does it work? What does it mean when you ‘take something to VCAT’ and how do you access VCAT if you live in rural and regional Victoria?
The Centre for Rural Regional Law and Justice at Deakin University invites you to attend a free rural law seminar exploring the role and responsibilities of VCAT.
- The range and type of issues that can be taken to VCAT
- What is the process?
- How do you prepare for a hearing?
- What happens after a determination is made?
VCATs Principal Registrar, Mr Jim Nelms PSM, will answer these and other questions during the seminar.
We encourage you to submit your question in advance by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
