A unique and accessible introduction to the federal judicial system established by Chapter III of the Constitution.

Chapter III of the Constitution is at the centre of the constitutional structures of government in Australia. Its provisions create the federal judicature and define the way in which it operates. Its interpretation has had a pivotal role in the design and operation of all institutions of government at the Federal, State and Territory levels.
