The Role of the Solicitor-General - Negotiating Law, Politics and the Public Interest (Paperback): Gabrielle Appleby The Role of the Solicitor-General - Negotiating Law, Politics and the Public Interest (Paperback)

Behind every government there is an impressive team of hard-working lawyers. In Australia, the Solicitor-General leads that team. A former Attorney-General once said, 'The Solicitor-General is next to the High Court and God.' And yet the role of government lawyers in Australia, and specifically the Solicitor-General as the most senior of government lawyers, is under-theorised and under-studied. The Role of the Solicitor-General: Negotiating Law, Politics and the Public Interest goes behind the scenes of government - drawing from interviews with over 45 government and judicial officials - to uncover the history, theory and practice of the Australian Solicitor-General. The analysis reveals a role that is of fundamental constitutional importance to ensuring both the legality and the integrity of government action, thus contributing to the achievement of rule-of-law ideals. The Solicitor-General also works to defend government action and prosecute government policies in the court, and thus performs an important role as messenger between the political and judicial branches of government. But the Solicitor-General's position, as both an internal integrity check on government and an external warrior for government, gives rise to competing pressures: between the law, politics and the public interest. The office of the Solicitor-General in Australia has evolved many characteristics across the almost two centuries of its history in an attempt to navigate these tensions. These pressures are not unique to the Australian context. The understanding of the Australian position provided by this book is informed by, and will inform, comparative analysis of the role of government lawyers across the world.

R2,448 Discovery Miles 24 480 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

At a time when the operation and reform of federal relations within Australia is squarely on the political agenda, this volume brings together eminent lawyers, economists and political scientists who explain, analyse and evaluate the theory and principles underpinning the Australian federal system. Topics covered include the High Court's approach to the interpretation of the Constitution and how this has influenced federal relations in practice; different forms of inter-governmental co-operative arrangements; fiscal relations between the Commonwealth and the States; and emergent ethno-cultural and socioeconomic diversity within the Australian Federation. Comparative perspectives from Germany, America, Canada, Switzerland, India and the European Union provide unique prisms through which to view the operation of the Australian system and to contemplate its reform.

Public Sentinels - A Comparative Study of Australian Solicitors-General (Paperback): Patrick Keyzer Public Sentinels - A Comparative Study of Australian Solicitors-General (Paperback)

In recent years, controversy has surrounded the role of top government lawyers in the United States and the United Kingdom. Allegations of bad lawyering and bad ethics in public office over the 'torture memos' in the United States and the political pressure placed on the Attorney-General in the United Kingdom to approve the legality of the Iraq war, have seen these relatively obscure group of government lawyers thrust into the public debate. Unlike its Anglo-American contemporaries, Australia's chief legal adviser, the Solicitor-General, has remained largely out of the public eye. This collection provides a rare and overdue insight into a fundamental public institution in all Australian jurisdictions. It provides a historical, theoretical, practical and comparative perspective of this little known, but vitally important, office at a time when the transparency and accountability of government has taken on an increased significance. Of interest to anyone interested in the integrity of government, the book will be particularly useful to government, political parties and the academy. It will also be a valuable reference work to those working towards a redefinition of the role of top government legal advisors.

R3,075 Discovery Miles 30 750 Out of stock

Australian Public Law 2nd Edition develops a clear theoretical framework for investigating public law. It provides comprehensive coverage of the foundational principles of public law in Australia, and introduces students to the three key institutions of government; the Judiciary, Parliament and Executive. Rather than simply describing the nature and function of these institutions, it discusses them through key issues that arise from their functions; for the parliament, democratic legitimacy and law making, for the executive, power, control and accountability, and for the judiciary, justification for and exercise of its power of review laws and executive action.

The Tim Carmody Affair - Australia's Greatest Judicial Crisis (Paperback): Rebecca Ananian-Welsh, Gabrielle Appleby,... The Tim Carmody Affair - Australia's Greatest Judicial Crisis (Paperback)

R672 Discovery Miles 6 720 Out of stock

In 2014 when Tim Carmody, a former police officer, was sworn in as Chief Justice of Queensland, he had been Chief Magistrate for only nine months and had never served on the Supreme Court. It was one of the most controversial judicial appointments in Australia's history. Chaos ensued. Appointed by then-premier Campbell Newman, Carmody lacked the experience and nous to hold Queensland's judicial system together. How could someone with a limited judicial background be appointed to such a powerful position? The Tim Carmody Affair explores his damaging and divisive tenure and the judicial rebellion that followed. It proposes ways Australia can improve the process of judicial appointments to avoid this kind of controversy again.
