    Apologies, I'm not sure whether this is the right area of the forum, I couldn't see one for Court/Tribunal appearances.

    I have a case pending before the consumer and administrative tribunal (B2B dispute).

    The question I wanted to ask is:
    a) Am I able to rely on past case law under Australian Law, specifically High Court cases, when making my arguments before the Tribunal, or is reliance on past case law disallowed (on account of this being a Tribunal and not a court)?
    b) I have been advised to provide the other party with all documents that I will rely on. Does this include past case law that I will rely on?
