PRESCRIBED TEXT FOR LS101 AT UNE, TRIMESTER 2 2013

Law and Justice in Australia is an 'introduction to law' textbook with a difference. It takes an historical, critical and contextual approach to law and justice and offers students a mix of stories, cases, article extracts and explanatory commentary with which to engage. This, with the author's natural narrative writing style, encourages students to develop an in-depth understanding of the legal system and creates a sound basis for further law study.


  * New chapters on public law and international law.


  * Further detail on statutory interpretation.


  * More 'nut and bolts' practical information and popular 'quirky stories' which engage students and help them frame their learning in a real life context.


  * Discussion of indigenous issues, including pre-settlement law, throughout the text normalises indigenous law, rather than seeing it as 'other' to British/White law.
