What can you do if you have a client who has unexpectedly become unwell shortly before a hearing at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal?

What kind of documentation do you need to provide to the Tribunal in support of a request for an adjournment?

The Migration Amendment (Regulation of Migration Agents) Bill 2017, that was introduced in the House of Representatives on 21 June 2017, includes amended provisions concerning the requirements for registration as a new migration agent.

On 21 June 2017, the Turnbull Government introduced legislation (the Migration Amendment (Regulation of Migration Agents Bill) 2017”) into the House of Representatives that, if enacted, would end the dual regulation of lawyers by the Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority.

The Kendall Report, which was issued on 24 September 2014, and which detailed the results of a study of the functions of the MARA that was commissioned by then-Assistant Minister Michaelia Cash, had made a recommendation that the system of dual regulation by  the MARA be ended.  However, legislation to implement this change had not been widely circulated until the introduction of the bill last week.
