5.4 Representation before the AAT


Decision-makers and authors of s.37 statements will not have to represent themselves before the AAT and normally will not be required to attend preliminary conferences or hearings. The Secretary and Minister will be represented before the AAT, in both preliminary conferences and hearings, by Advocates from the Legal Services Branch  who will seek instructions as necessary   in relation to any policy advice and the conduct of the matter.
