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.

How should a landowner respond when a squatter occupies their land? This book discusses the issues focussing on vindicatio, possessory remedies and trespass, but also explores administrative procedures for their removal. In many cases, these actions derive from Roman laws, which are expertly explored in an introductory chapter. Also included is a chapter exploring human rights interventions in such actions. Twelve case studies offer an extensive and comparative analysis across sixteen European jurisdictions. The basic defendants covered are squatters taking over a home, environmental protesters, licensees and former tenants. The case studies include, amongst others, self-help; restitution; competing claims to ownership (and the relevance of registration systems to claims to ownership); adverse possession; neighbours; nuisance and encroachment.

With the appearance of the Tenth Edition, this book enters its sixth decade. Throughout its long history, this casebook has relied on classic cases to capture the fundamental principles of contract law, and this edition reinforces that tradition. This new edition preserves and builds upon the book's distinctive character, especially its use of canonical cases, its sensitivity to the history and evolution of doctrine, and its close attention to the legal consequences of breach. The newly added cases show how the basic principles of contract law continue to apply across a wide range of transactions. As before, this edition eschews any distinctive take on the law of contracts and thus allows each teacher using the book a broad range of choice on what to bring in to channel or expand classroom discussion. The most visible alteration in this edition is an expanded treatment of the important problem of contract interpretation. A significant amount of new material has been added, but the length of the book remains about the same. This edition both covers recent developments and maintains a manageable length. The Teacher's Manual has also been extensively revised.

This new and creatively conceived casebook introduces the international legal order as it presents itself at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Consistently and effectively blending theory and practice, it is designed to give students the basic knowledge and understanding of transnational law that every modern lawyer should possess. This is an ideal text both for students who will take only one course in international law, and for those seeking a solid foundation for more specialized courses. It is organized around five major themes: actors, interactions among actors, substantive norms, methods of dispute resolution, and domestic effects of transnational law. Students are first shown how classical international law emerged and, most important, how it has evolved into modern transnational law. They are then invited to revisit each of the five core themes in the context of cutting-edge contemporary legal challenges. The casebook's unique approach enables students to gain both the knowledge and confidence they need to approach the increasingly complex range of transactions and disputes that reach beyond national boundaries.
