Summary "This book provides an engaging, comprehensive and reader-friendly overview of Australian public law institutions and principles, together with the principles and process of statutory interpretation. The former inform the fundamental nature of the Australian legal system; the latter is vital knowledge in a legal system in which statute law is so pervasive. This book is the first text to draw these two topics together to clearly explain how the principles of statutory interpretation reflect the constitutional relationship between the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government." -- Publisher's website.
