First year of the Federal Magistrates Service
ADR Bulletin
  • Laurence Boulle, Bond University
Extract:On 1 July 2001 the Australian Federal Magistrates Service (FMS) celebrated the first anniversary of its existence. The FMS is the first lower level Commonwealth court in the history of the federation and can be seen, in part, as a product of the ‘access to justice’ movement which emerged in the early 1990s in this country.
