Decision writing training video

January 11, 2017 - 10:19am

We have released a short 30 minute introductory training video on decision writing. This training video is for individuals who write decisions under the Right to Information Act 2009 (Qld) and the Information Privacy Act 2009 (Qld). The content has been specifically designed for the right to information environment.

The reasons for a decision are not just the conclusion or the outcome of the matter but should adequately explain the analysis which led to the conclusion or outcome. As a result, reasons identify the parties, crystallise the issues, accurately set out the relevant facts, and explain the conclusion in light of the applicable law and the arguments of the parties involved. In doing this, the reasons should be written in a style and manner that aids understanding with due consideration to the reader.
