Constitutional Law Guidebook explains the basic principles of the law and how they have been applied in leading cases. It is designed as a foundation for students who are new to the topic, and also as a ready reference point for those engaged in revision. The text uses a 'whole document' approach to give students grounding in the key principles of Commonwealth and State constitutional law and shows them how to apply their lecture content into 'real life' contexts. The subject of constitutional law is kept engaging by using realistic situations to show how the law underlies everyday life. New Online Resource Centre provides guidance for students when answering problem questions as well as example material about how to structure a legal advice on a constitutional law matter.
