Halsbury’s Laws of Australia

Connect to: Halsbury’s Laws of Australia

Halsburys Laws of Australia comprises a narrative statement of the law of Australia covering every subject area and all nine jurisdictions. It is a work of first reference and has been specifically constructed to aid research at this level. The text is generally confined to concise statements of principle, without discussion of those principles, unless this is required by differences between the jurisdictions. Each principle and proposition of substantive law is comprehensively supported by primary authority (cases and legislation) stated in the relevant footnote. Throughout the work the law is stated in sufficient detail to enable legal practitioners or researchers to tackle problems arising in areas falling outside their usual areas of expertise.
