Tribunal & Appeals

Tribunal & Appeals in Australia

A tribunal is a court that hears and decides disputes between individuals or groups. An appeal is a request to a higher court to overturn the decision of a lower court.

There are many different types of tribunals in Australia, each with its own rules and procedures. Some tribunals are part of the court system, while others are independent bodies set up to deal with specific types of disputes.

Some tribunals can hear appeals from lower courts, while others can only hear cases that have been brought before them directly.

A lawyer can help you navigate the tribunal system and ensure that your rights are protected. Lawyers can also represent you in appeals to higher courts.

If you have a dispute that you need to take to a tribunal, or if you are considering appealing a decision made by a tribunal, contact us today.
