Bringing together in one “super tribunal” the work of 22 separate tribunals, the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (“NCAT”) commenced operation on 1 January 2014.  It comprises four divisions: Administrative and Equal Opportunity, Consumer and Commercial, Guardianship and Occupational.

NCAT – Practice and Procedure is a unique guide for those practising in NCAT. Designed for both lawyers and non-lawyers, this book provides the key legislation governing practice in the Tribunal and commentary on that legislation: the Civil and Administrative Tribunal Act 2013, the Administrative Decisions Review Act 1997 and rules and regulations made under those Acts. The legislation has been fully consolidated, capturing the latest amendments up to 1 June 2015.

The authors, Mark Robinson SC, Dr Juliet Lucy and John Fitzgerald, with their expertise in all aspects of the conduct of the Tribunal, provide practical guidance about conducting proceedings in each of the Divisions.  The commentary covers the day to day operation of each Division, addressing matters such as making an application to the Tribunal, the Tribunal’s jurisdiction, lodgement of documents, seeking a stay, representation in the Tribunal, costs, appeals and an examination of representative cases.

 “NCAT – Practice and Procedure” is an essential reference for both lawyers and self-represented litigants appearing in NCAT.
