Book launch: "Oxford Handbook of the Australian Constitution"

25 May 2018

'The Oxford Handbook of the Australian Constitution', edited by Emeritus Professor Cheryl Saunders and Professor Adrienne Stone, was launched on 25 May 2018 at Melbourne Law School by the Hon. Susan Kiefel AC, Chief Justice of Australia.

Constitutional law provides the legal framework for the Australian political and legal systems, and thus touches almost every aspect of Australian life. The Handbook offers a critical analysis of some of the most significant aspects of Australian constitutional arrangements, setting them against the historical, legal, political, and social contexts in which Australia's constitutional system has developed. It takes care to highlight the distinctive features of the Australian constitutional system by placing the Australian system, where possible, in global perspective.

Written by a team of experts drawn from the judiciary, academia, and practice, the Handbook provides Australian and international readers alike with a reliable source of knowledge, understanding, and insight into the Australian Constitution.
