The first work dealing comprehensively with jurisdiction in the Australian legal system.
Although the book extends to all aspects of jurisdiction, it covers the whole of federal jurisdiction, and provides not only an accessible analysis for practitioners and courts, but also a thoughtful and detailed account of the underlying principle and decisions. All classes of federal “matters” are addressed, but with an emphasis on those arising most commonly in practice, as well as the essential statutory provisions by which State and federal jurisdiction is conferred and qualified and excluded. Separate chapters deal with invoking jurisdiction, jurisdictional error, service, and appeals and appellate jurisdiction, in State and federal courts.
