Losing your land in a compulsory land acquisition is bad. Receiving inadequate compensation from the High Court is worse. What can a dissatisfied landowner do next? Does section 49(1) of the Land Acquisition Act 1960 prevent appeals to the Court of Appeal? In this webinar, our speakers will discuss how appeals to the Court of Appeal in land acquisition matters can succeed.

Talk points:
● Overview of the land acquisition process
● Limitations on the right of appeal
● Appealing on questions of law
● Recent Court of Appeal and Federal Court decisions

Speakers: Denise Phang (Senior Associate) and Raymond Mah (Managing Partner)

Moderator: Vivien Fan (Senior Associate)
