Administrative Law Initiative Australia

Administrative Law Courses Australia

Administrative Law Courses courses provide very considerable savings compared to individual enrolments. While an ideal session size may be in the range of up to 20-25 participants, we are happy to accommodate any session size which is preferred.

Administrative Law - Legal Training Courses Canberra

Starting in February 2018, ALi will offer a complete range of 8 administrative law courses open to all public servants. The courses include Administrative Law Illustrated, Building a Better Decision and Cases of Distinction

Privacy/FOI training

FOI requires a sound understanding of both ‘administrative’ and ‘access’ decision making. Applying excellent decision-making skills are a key to high quality FOI outcomes.

Administrative Law decision making in FOI covers a broad range of matters including validity of requests, documents covered, transfers, consultation, charges and resources. These administrative decisions lay the ground work for handling the FOI request and are vital to its later success.



Legal Training Services Australia


ALi provides expert and experienced legal training for agencies and their staff. Every ALi session covers the fundamentals and the latest developments. The ALi objective is increased legal knowledge and compliance for individual public servants and government as a whole. While the initial 2018 sessions are in Canberra, ALi can provide courses anywhere in Australia.


ALi springs from the continuing passion to communicate the values, principles and experience of administrative law in Australia. What ALi sessions offer is expert legal knowledge and a stimulating training experience, with some excitement, passion and even a little entertainment thrown in!

Administrative Law Initiative


ALi courses are designed to appeal very effectively to diverse audiences. The courses work very well for beginning and experienced public servants, and for those who have legal training and for those who have other expertise.

The subject areas for ALi include statutory interpretation, decision-making, information law, merits and judicial review, and Ombudsman. These subjects are dynamic and evolving and are central to the role and functioning of government.

Administrative law does not have to be boring. Cases and stories, anecdotes and pictures, and hypotheticals and role plays, are amongst the best means to great learning outcomes.

For its 2018 courses, ALi will commence with all new materials with a new perspective on and coverage of the topic areas. The materials will combine the latest developments with the enduring fundamentals, to create comprehensive and compelling courses.

ALi  places the highest premium on client satisfaction, and will discuss options with you and work with you to obtain the best possible outcome. ALi will design and deliver sessions which consistently exceed expectations.
