Stellios, Australian Constitutional Law

Hanks Australian Constitutional Law Materials and Commentary

Author(s): James Stellios, Jennifer Clarke, Patrick Keyzer

Hanks Australian Constitutional Law - Materials & Commentary is the authoritative casebook for the study of constitutional law. This book considers the concepts underlying our Constitution and explores constitutional decision-making in context. The title reviews all of the important constitutional decisions of the High Court of Australia, and exposes the issues that arise in those decisions to a critical analysis.  Improvements for this edition include an integrated chapter on judicial power (Ch 9), separate consideration of s 92 (Ch 11), strengthening the public law focus of chapter 1, and reintroducing a detailed table of contents. New to this edition are reference of state powers to the Commonwealth and intergovernmental co-operation (Ch 1 and 5), national security and defence (Ch 3), and a complete re-write of chapter 8, 'The Executive'.
