Australian Public Law 2nd Edition develops a clear theoretical framework for investigating public law. It provides comprehensive coverage of the foundational principles of public law in Australia, and introduces students to the three key institutions of government; the Judiciary, Parliament and Executive.

Rather than simply describing the nature and function of these institutions, it discusses them through key issues that arise from their functions; for the parliament, democratic legitimacy and law making, for the executive, power, control and accountability, and for the judiciary, justification for and exercise of its power of review laws and executive action.
