Leading Cases in Australian Law provides, in essence, a summary of the 200 most cited cases in Australian law. Each case note contains an outline of the facts, issues and decision, an extract of the most frequently cited portions of the judgment, commentary incorporating later decisions on the topic, and cross-references to the leading texts on the legal area of the case. Finally, under each case heading there is a single-sentence proposition for which the case stands as authority, and these are later collated in a table for easy reference.
This is the first book of its kind published in Australia, and it is intended to serve as a portrait of Australian law as currently practised. Appendices are included to complete this picture, providing further information such as lists of top cases by subject area, and a ranking of the most cited judges.
This book will be useful to law students, who will likely encounter most of these cases during the course of their degree, as well as to legal practitioners, who will find it a useful reference for the cases that have faded from memory since law school as well as the cases cited in daily practice.
