Instead, the strategy of this book is to focus on institutions – ‘administrative tribunals’ – that share certain basic characteristics with the AAT and to sideline other types of institution to which the term ‘tribunal’ is applied. For this purpose, three distinctive features of the AAT may be singled out: its institutional nature, its characteristic function and its jurisdiction. 1 The AAT is not a court First, the AAT is not a court. This statement can be explained quite precisely because in Australian federal law, the word ‘court’ has a technical constitutional meaning, namely a body established under Chapter III of the Constitution, the judges of which are appointed in accordance with section 72 of the Constitution (with security of tenure and salary protection) and the predominant function of which is the exercise of federal judicial power.

Vis-à-vis their users, the purpose of tribunals is increasingly described in terms of ‘administrative justice’ – tribunals, we are told, are part of a system the overall purpose of which is to deliver administrative justice to individuals. One aim of Chapter 6 is to unpack this complex and ubiquitous idea and to examine various aspects of the operation of tribunals that constitute strands of the concept of administrative justice: access to tribunals; the scope of their jurisdiction; rules of procedure and evidence; and issues of cost and timeliness.

As a general principle, it may be efficient for a governmental institution to specialise in the performance of one task as its characteristic function; but there is no reason to think that allowing an agency to perform more than one type of function will necessarily lead to undue concentration of power or conflicts of interest. So, for instance, provided certain constraints are observed, the functions of making rules and adjudicating disputes about their implementation can be and are combined in one and the same institution without thereby unduly concentrating power or creating potential conflicts of interest.
