Selway, Solicitor-General for SA, analyses his State’s Constitution in the first new work on State Constitutions for a generation.
His book covers all the traditional subject matter and a variety of related topics that are usually treated separately. Thus, considered in their constitutional context, is the recognition of Aboriginal customary law, the role of the monarchy, the activities of statutory bodies, and judicial review.
The Constitution of South Australia is essential reading for lawyers and other dealing with State constitutional problems in Australia. While focussed on South Australia, the similarity between the State Constitutions means it has general application elsewhere.
