The third edition of Law of Agency written by G E Dal Pont aims to convey to the reader the principles surrounding agency law from an Australian perspective. In so doing it refers extensively not only to relevant Australian case law and statutory provisions, but contextualises these by reference to legal developments in the main common law jurisdictions (namely the UK, US, Canada and New Zealand, as well as some reference to Hong Kong and Singapore case law).
In addition to cataloguing the relevant principles, the book provides commentary and analysis on areas of uncertainty and dispute, and to this end makes regular reference to other academic works.
