Proposed amalgamation of the Federal Courts

Last week the Courts Administration Legislation Amendment Bill 2015 was introduced in the Senate. The proposed legislation is intended to bring the Federal Court of Australia, the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit of Australia into a single administrative entity and make legislative provision for the courts to share corporate services.

In light of the funding crisis being experienced by the Federal Courts at this time it would appear that an aim of this proposed legislation is to save money in relation to administration costs. However, a concern has been raised in relation to the Bill as to whether expected savings can be achieved - without cuts to services.
