A party may apply to the Court for an order:
(a) that an assessor be appointed to:
(i) take evidence from a party to a proceeding at a time, date and place arranged with the party; and
(ii) decide how the evidence is to be recorded; and
(iii) to prepare a report of the evidence and give it to the Court by a specified time; and
(b) that a person be summoned to appear before the assessor to give evidence or produce documents or other things.
Note: Section 83 of the Native Title Act allows the Chief Justice to direct an assessor to assist the Court in relation to a proceeding, subject to the control and direction of the Court.
