Civil Dispute Resolution Act 2011


The Civil Dispute Resolution Act 2011 commenced on 1 August 2011. The Act requires parties commencing certain proceedings in the Federal Court or Federal Magistrates Court to file a genuine steps statement saying what genuine steps they have taken to try and resolve their dispute, or if they have not, the reasons why.

The Attorney-General’s Department of the Australian Government is evaluating the operation of the Act. The Department has engaged Australian Survey Research to conduct a survey on our behalf to allow key stakeholders provide feedback on the Act. Please click here for more details. The survey will take at most 10 minutes to complete and your answers will remain completely confidential.
