  • Evolution of commercial ADR in australia

        p.765                                                                                      +cite        
        This article records the events surrounding the advent of commercial ADR in Australia. The author carries the narrative forward to the widespread acceptance now accorded to consensus-oriented approaches to the avoidance, management and resolution of conflict, described by the author as "inherently the province and function of ADR".
  • Principle of Legality and the Clear Statement Principle
        Hon J J Spigelman, AC
        p.769                                                                                      +cite        
        The protection which the common law affords to the preservation of fundamental rights and liberties is, to a large extent, secreted within the law of statutory interpretation. It is a longstanding principle of statutory interpretation that, in the absence of a clear statement to the contrary, Parliament is presumed not to intend to abrogate such rights and liberties. This is a manifestation of a unifying principle, which has conveniently been called "the principle of legality". This article explores how the principle of legality informs the process of statutory interpretation and examines the level of linguistic clarity that is required from Parliament to successfully express an intention that the principle of legality be set aside.
  • Judicial Activism in Australia
        Ian Barker
                                                                                               +cite        
        Judicial activism is easier to criticise in the abstract than identify in particular cases. To some the concept is one of grave heresy. To others it is merely a manifestation of the continuing evolution of the common law. If it is an offence, it seems the High Court of Australia is sometimes guilty of it, but not as often as some other comparable tribunals such as the Supreme Court of India. But one thing is certain: whatever the phenomenon really is, it has been with us in Australia since long before the High Court wasestablished. 783
