Submission: Law Reform Commission’s Open Justice Review – Court and tribunal information


The Tenants’ Union of NSW is the peak body representing the interests of tenants in NSW. We are a Community Legal Centre specialising in residential tenancy law and policy, and the main resourcing body for the state-wide network of Tenants Advice and Advocacy Services (TAASs) in NSW. Given the nature of our work, our submission focuses on two specific areas concerning open justice and civil matters, specifically matters relating to tenancy, social housing, and residential communities:

  1. Publication of reasons for decisions at the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal
  2. Provision of statistical data relating to the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal
