The Australian Judiciary

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Oct 22, 2001 - Law - 298 pages
This work will come to be considered the definitive book on the Australian judiciary, its history, its training, its work, its techniques, its problems and its future. Apart from a wealth of descriptive material about different tiers of courts and judges and the role of the judiciary as the third sector of government, the authors offer analysis and commentary about judicial conduct, judicial independence, the work of judges beyond the courts, accountability of judges, and the dangers to judicial institutions. The Australian Judiciary is an excellent reference and will appeal to legal scholars internationally.
