The International Law Practice Manual provides accessible guidance on a range of international legal materials, which illustrates how they can be used to enhance outcomes for Australian legal practitioners, judges and other professionals working in both the public and private sectors.
Consideration of Australia’s obligations under international law is rapidly increasing in policy-making and legal process, yet many lawyers and other professionals remain unaware of what international legal materials are available and how to use them effectively.
As judges increasingly draw upon international law to interpret Australian legislation or support their reasoning, so too must lawyers refer to it in their applications or legal advice to clients. Furthermore, government agencies may be required to comply with those conventions which have been ratified by Australia and have a competent understanding of various international instruments. The Manual will equip lawyers with a sound understanding and working knowledge of how international law interacts with Australian law. It is written in plain English and in a highly accessible format.
