        p.92                                                                                        +cite        
        This article discusses the "security of payment" legislation in the building and construction industry, with a focus on the existing legislation applicable in the Australian States and Territories. Given recent developments relating to the clash of State and federal legislation, this area has been the subject of much legal scrutiny over the past few years.

        p.111                                                                                      +cite        
        This article deals with the obligations on judges, arbitrators and court-appointed referees to provide reasons for their decisions and what is required to satisfy those obligations. It analyses the reasoning process, and the rationale for the provision of reasons. It also considers the principles to be applied by arbitrators in providing reasons for their award, and compares and contrasts the standards to be satisfied by arbitrators with those which are applicable to judges and court-appointed referees respectively.
