Infrastructure projects can be divisive.  Judicial review is way for community groups and individuals who are dissatisfied with an infrastructure project to challenge the approvals that underpin the project.  
The Land, Planning and Environment Practice Group of the Victorian Government Solicitor’s Office invites you to a panel discussion that will explore judicial review from both a project approvals and project management perspective. 
Natasha Maugueret, Managing Principal Solicitor, will facilitate the discussion and pose a series of questions to panellists regarding:
  • Preliminary project planning
  • Legislative approval mechanisms
  • Nature of judicial review
  • Judicial review proceedings
