Senior Member A Vassie (VCAT) – I recently conducted my daughter’s four day work experience for her school. We attended on hearings conducted at the four major jurisdictions including the County Court, Supreme Court, Magistrate’s Court and the VCAT.
The highlight of the rounds was two hearings conducted by Mr Vassie at the VCAT. His pragmatic and practical approach to administration was notable and seemed to be well received by the litigants. This is also true of his written decisions – I find his reasons when published to be articulate and flowing, seemingly catering for both interested legal parties and lay persons alike.
