Blackshield & Williams' Australian Constitutional Law and Theory and Douglas & Jones' Administrative Law are leading textbooks in their respective fields, the one now in its 5th edition, the other in its 6th. They are widely used in Australian law schools, most of which have separate courses in each subject. Some, however, teach a course in public law which straddles both courses; one of these is the Law School at Sydney University. This book takes sections from each book to make a text on Public Law in Australia. The sections included have been selected by those teaching the course at Sydney Law School and the book will be used as the course text in that Law School.
