This is the new and fully updated edition of the acclaimed and authoritative book on Australian constitutional law.

Fresh material reflects the contemporary approach of the High Court including its emphasis on statutory interpretation as a tool of constitutional analysis.

The book has also been fully revised and updated for major High Court and overseas decisions, including McCloy v New South Wales, Williams v Commonwealth (No 2), the Brexit Case and Plaintiff M68/2015 v Minister for Immigration.

Always 'much more than a casebook' as Sir Anthony Mason said of a previous edition, the book also presents carefully selected extracts from a broad range of writers and commentators.

As the reviewer for the Law Institute Journal said of the most recent edition, this book is 'a great resource for practitioners wanting an authoritative guide to Australian constitutional law' and a 'must-have for law students who would like more depth of analysis'.
