This is the most authoritative and comprehensive book available on the limitations imposed by the doctrine of Res Judicata. First published in the 1920s, this frequently cited work ensures readers understand how the doctrine of Res Judicata is enforced and also how it does not apply.

It gives essential information on what constitutes a Res Judicata decision, how judicial decisions apply in rem and in personam, in taxation and rating cases, in criminal cases (autrefois acquit), in matrimonial cases, in prima facie cases of estoppel and in merger judgments. The text is fully supported by extensive footnotes and appropriate cases to demonstrate each point.

Written by The Honourable Mr Justice K R Handley, Judge of the Court of Appeal of New South Wales, this is the most authoritative and comprehensive book available on the doctrine. It provides essential information on what constitutes a res judicata decision, how judicial decisions apply in rem and in personam, as well as in particular fields such as traffic cases, taxation, crime (autrefois acquit) and judicial review.

Key Features:-

  • Extensive coverage of cases from other Commonwealth jurisdictions and for the first time from Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and South Africa;
  • Updated content on the extensive case law in the UK since the last edition in 1996;
