"The doctrine of natural justice is founded in the notion that logical reasoning may allow the determination of just, or fair proceedings. Natural justice has become a legal term of art, especially in administrative law. Natural justice includes the notion of procedural fairness and may incorporate the following guidelines:
A person accused of a crime, or at risk of some form of loss, should be given adequate notice about the proceedings (including any charges).
person making a decision should declare any personal interest they may have in the proceedings.
A person who makes a decision should be unbiased.
Proceedings should be conducted so they are fair to all the parties.
Each party to a proceeding is entitled to ask questions and contradict the evidence of the opposing party.
A decision-maker should not take into account irrelevant considerations.
A decision-maker should take into account relevant considerations.
Not only should justice be done but it should be seen to be done; in other words, legal proceedings should be made public."
