This is a study of the common law constitution in Australia as it stood in mid-1999. In particular, the book discusses the concept and doctrine of ""natural"" justice.;The author notes that two judgements prior to this date suggest that the issues discussed within remain live. The judgements in question confirm that the juridical basis for the imposition of a duty to observe natural justice remains unsettled. He points out that, though the cases were dealing with constitutional law in the formal sense, the judgements do not hint at any lessening of the doctrine's robustness in the Australian setting.
