Migration Law Masterclass

Managing Section 501 character cases

Thursday 25 February · 9.00am - 12.15pm · 3 CPD Units


Join Nick Poynder (Barrister, Frederick Jordan Chambers) and David Prince (Principal Solicitor, Kinslor Prince Lawyers) for a Masterclass in managing section 501 character cases before the General Division of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and the Federal Court of Australia.

The government’s use of the character powers has exploded over the past few years, while at the same time there has been a significant increase in the types of conduct potentially caught by these powers. In no other area of migration law and practice has strategy and forward planning become so important to the outcome of both merits and judicial review. In particular, not all successes before the Tribunal and the Court are equal when the Minister can later potentially personally adversely intervene and overturn success before either body. This Masterclass will show you how to craft a strategy from the beginning of your case to influence a more positive outcome at the end.
