You can trust me! Administrative law: Building trust and confidence in government decision-making

 Thursday 27 and Friday 28 July 2023

Adelaide Convention Centre

            North Terrace, Adelaide SA

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 2023 Conference will be the 32nd National Administrative Law Conference.  The aim of the Conference is to provide those involved or interested in Australian administrative law with the opportunity to discuss contemporary issues, share practical experiences and consider future developments. The 2023 Conference will be hosted by the SA Chapter of the Institute.


The overarching theme for the 2023 AIAL National Administrative Law Conference will be You can trust me! Administrative law: Building trust and confidence in government decision-making.

Government decision-making is being subjected to greater public scrutiny as social media and web-based communication open up commentary to wider demographics.  Governments themselves are taking active steps to ensure decision-making processes and outcomes are more transparent.  It might be assumed that greater transparency and scrutiny would result in heightened public confidence in governments. However some much publicised events in recent years could be argued to have had the opposite effect, and to have eroded the public’s trust in governments.

The 2023 Conference aims to examine integrity at all levels of Australian government and will focus on administrative law principles and mechanisms that contribute to sound decision-making that in turn builds public trust and provides greater transparency and greater protection for our citizens, particularly those who are most vulnerable.
