The Judiciary Project at the Gilbert + Tobin Centre of Public law is delighted to invite you to a special event: a book forum to celebrate the launch of Judicial Federalism in Australia: History, Theory, Doctrine and Practice (Federation Press, 2021).
This book is the culmination of more than five years of work of the authors, Gabrielle Appleby, Anna Olijnyk, James Stellios and John Williams. It provides a holistic analysis of the federal dimension of Chapter III of the Constitution, including its historical foundations in the colonial justice system, through to the drafting of the federation and the subsequent development of State Chapter III jurisprudence by the High Court through the Kable principle. It provides, for the first time, an empirical study of the effect of this jurisprudence on the development and design of policies by the States.
Join the authors and a panel of esteemed commentators to discuss the book and celebrate its publication.
