Abstract:

Containing authoritative essays that were presented at the national conference held in Canberra in October 2003 to mark the Centenary of the High Court of Australia (1903 - 2003), this text provides valuable and essential insights into many important legal issues in Australian jurisprudence by the most eminent judges, barristers, and legal scholars. Each chapter is an original work of scholarship that broadens and deepens our understanding of Australian law and government. Together they provide a rich and varied account of the Court's first century, and they set an agenda for the years to come. Covering the most significant High Court decisions across main legal areas and their subsequent impact on Australian life, this text also thoroughly considers and analyses the historical, social and political dynamics on the jurisprudence of the Court.
