This topical book focuses on select aspects of government law and policy which significantly affect the commercial/business sectors or which involve government in these sectors.
Written with a strong practical focus, it covers law, policy and practicalities at all levels of government. Commercial lawyers who act for or against government, government lawyers and government officials and policy advisers will find this new volume indispensable.
"The book is clearly comprehensive in its coverage and instructive for a wide range of persons on both sides of the contract and advising desks. Current matters provided some focus and established the depth of coverage. Misfeasance in public office and the requirement for probity in government contracting is such a matter, and the text provides substantive reading as the standards to be expected. ... Some of the other topics explored are local government, native title and liability of government officers.
The limits of crown immunity and liability for negligence of government officials are subjects carefully exposed in this area. Check lists for review and advising in the general area of crown immunity are provided.
This text is invaluable reading ..." - Ethos (Law Society of the ACT), May 1999
