COAT’s Decision Writing Workshop is designed to improve decision writing skills through analysis, discussion and rewriting aspects of reasons for decision.  It is aimed at members with at least two years’ experience. The workshop provides participants with practical tools and tips for better decision writing. It is highly interactive and features small group exercises.

Topics include:

  • – preparing and planning reasons for decisions
  • – structuring reasons for decisions
  • – writing decisions that are clear, comprehensive, and persuasive, and
  • – getting started and keeping going.

The inaugural course was launched in August 2018 and  an in-house course was delivered in early September 2019 in Perth, facilitated by experienced tribunal members and writers, with excellent feedback. We have received a number of expressions of interest for the next available course. Please click here for the previous Course Program as a guide.

To assist with planning, please contact the COAT secretariat  (0418 281 116; secretariat@coat.asn.au) if you would like to attend a course (Please note course dates and format are yet to be confirmed) or host a course in your state chapter or Tribunal maximum – 25 participants).
