2018 COAT National Conference
7 - 8 June, 2018I QT Canberra, ACT

Thank you For Attending

Thank you for attending the 2018 Tribunals National Conference organised by the Council of Australasian Tribunals.

The Conference was held at the QT Canberra on 7 and 8 June 2018, just before the Queen’s birthday long weekend.

The theme of the conference was Toward the Horizon – Tribunals of the Future.

The focus was on features of the broader community, future trends within Australasia and the impact they will have on the work of tribunals. In other words, we will be looking well outside the day-to-day work of tribunals to understand changes in the environment in which we operate (including advances in technology and security issues) in order to inform the development of future practices. With that in mind, we are engaging a number of speakers in disciplines outside the law.

We also has sessions dealing with the skills that tribunal members need to do their work successfully - such as preparing and delivering ex tempore decisions, and identifying and dealing with conflicts of interest.

The Conference dinner was held at the Australian War Memorial in a special venue steeped in history, 100 years after the end of World War I.
