Difficult conversations – values and administrative law


Thursday 18 and Friday19 July 2024

Hotel Realm, 18 National Circuit

Barton, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

The AIAL National Administrative Law Conference is Australia’s pre-eminent administrative law conference, having been held each year since 1991 (except in 2020, due to COVID-19 restrictions). The 2024 Conference will be the 33rd National Administrative Law Conference.

Are values fundamental to administrative law, and if so, which values, and how do, or should, these influence modern administrative law? This Conference seeks to explore these issues from a range of perspectives. Values in the public service, the effectiveness of whistleblowing mechanisms and the proper  management of outsourcing will be discussed, and updates will be provided on recent significant High Court decisions and legislative developments relating to various aspects of administrative law. The Conference will also look to the future, inviting consideration about giving effect to these principles in protecting national security, using  automation and implementing inquiry recommendations.

The Conference will be relevant to government decision-makers; those affected by decisions, and their advisers; members of review bodies, tribunals and courts; policy  developers; public lawyers; academics; and others with an  interest in Australian administrative law.
