Administrative Review in the NT
court or tribunal to review on their merits administrative decisions made by government departments and officials. The NT is the latest jurisdiction to establish a super tribunal, known as the NT Civil and Administrative Tribunal, to conduct such reviews.
Merits review involves reviewing an administrative decision to decide whether the correct and preferable decision was made. There is a second kind of administrative review in the NT known as judicial review, which involves a court reviewing an administrative decision to check if it was made lawfully.
You can make an application for the judicial review of a government decision that applies to you to the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory.
