National Basketball League: Single Member Tribunal Member

Applications close Friday 8 September 2017 at 5pm

All applications must be submitted via email to Robert Yu, NBL General Counsel at robert.yu@lkg.com.au.

A Tribunal Member with the National Basketball League Pty Ltd (NBL) is a non-paying rotational position entailing the review of players’ conduct in line with our Tribunal Guidelines (Guidelines). As part of this role, you will be required to serve on two tribunals: the Single Member Tribunal (SMT) and the Full Member Tribunal (FMT), as is appropriate to the circumstances.

As part of the SMT, you will be required to decide whether penalties should be imposed against players for offences under the Guidelines, and any other matters the NBL deems relevant. On occasion, you may be required to review a decision of the SMT to see if it warrants an appeal. If you agree to grant a leave to appeal, you will chair the relevant FMT with two other members, who will be relevant subject matter experts.

Basketball Australia: Hearing/Appeals Panel Members

Basketball Australia has recently launched its new National Integrity Framework.  You can find the full details of the Framework, including the detailed policies, here: www.basketball.net.au/integrity.

To implement the Framework, Basketball Australia is seeking to establish a pool of individuals who may be called on to serve as independent members of Hearing and/or Appeals Panels.

The composition of these panels is defined under sections 18 and 23 of the policy document, which in its full title is the “National Framework for Ethical Behaviour and Integrity in Basketball” (http://www.basketball.net.au/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/National-Integrity-Framework-Effective-1-July-2017.pdf).

Whilst these positions are honorary and will not attract any form of payment, Basketball Australia will cover all approved expenses including travel for those serving on Panels.

Panel members should hold a law degree or have significant experience in sporting (not necessarily basketball) tribunals and/or hearings.

If you, or someone you know, is interested in this opportunity, please apply in writing to recruitment@basketball.net.au using the phrase Integrity Panellist in the subject line.  Applications should include a brief overview of your interest in the role and your relevant skills and experiences.

Basketball Australia will confirm panel appointments by way of a volunteer engagement letter.
