  • Options for the doctrine of Crown immunity in 21st century Australia
        Anthony Gray
        p.200                                                                                      +cite        
        This article outlines the historical development of the position of the Crown in terms of immunity from statute, and considers the reception of these doctrines in Australian law, including the extra complication provided by a federal system in discussing these issues. The author then considers various formulations that might be used in future, including broad and narrow conceptions of immunity, in an attempt to make the law in this area as coherent as possible while recognising the realities and requirements of modern governance.
  • The differing and disappearing standards of judicial review in Canada
        Matthew Groves
        p.211                                                                                      +cite        
        The legal heritages of Canada and Australia share have many common features. Both countries are former British colonies that inherited the English common law and many of its conventions of government. They also broke with English tradition through the adoption of a written constitution and a federal legal system. Despite these many similarities, there is very little comparative analysis between Canadian and English law. This article examines aspects of Canada's law of judicial review and the recent decision of that country to collapse three standards of unreasonableness into two. It also considers whether this move and other elements of Canadian law might illuminate Australian law.
