Natural justice is a fundamental common law principle,one that also applies to non-judicial bodies which is why it is relevant to the disciplinary hearings of sporting clubs. It requires that a person accused of misbehaviour be given sufficient opportunity to prepare and present their case, and that bias not be involved in the decision. Both these aspects of natural justice were at issue in the North Queensland case of Petersen v Proserpine Golf Club Inc due to the way in which the golf club conducted its hearings into the allegations of misconduct against the plaintiff.
