Principles of Australian Constitutional Law, 4th Edition
Format: Softcover , Book
Principles of Australian Constitutional Law, now in its fourth edition, is a popular textbook aimed at students and practitioners. It is prescribed or recommended in many Australian law schools, and has helped a generation of law graduates safely navigate the sometimes murky waters of Australian constitutional jurisprudence. Principles of Australian Constitutional Law is popular because it is up-to-date, it provides helpful summaries of the key cases, and it blends a chronological account of the case law with an analytical account that explains the deeper issues.
"Patrick Keyzer has employed his intimate familiarity with the judicial considerations of the Constitution to develop a logical, integrated exposition of its provisions. The fields of operations of its several provisions, the cases in which they have been considered and the problems which they raise are clearly displayed. More importantly, the underlying principles and approaches which inform the ever-growing law of the Constitution have been examined."
- The Hon Sir Gerard Brennan, AC, KBE
Chief Justice of Australia, 1995-1998
