Human Rights under the Australian Constitution is the leading text on how the Australian Constitution protects human rights. It provides a comprehensive overview and analysis of the key public law principles, including the full range of express and implied rights in the Australian Constitution.

It does this within a broader context, including the drafting and origins of the Australian Constitution and the interaction of constitutional principles with the common law, statute law and international law. The Australian position is examined in light of developments in comparable legal systems, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and New Zealand.

The result is a thorough work that examines in context areas of law of great importance to Australian democracy, including freedom of speech, the right to vote, freedom of religion, the acquisition of property on just terms, judicial independence and the right to a fair trial.
