Designed as an accessible introduction to Australia's legal system, this popular book demystifies the law and shows its importance to our society.

Written by highly qualified authors, the direct, clear and often humorous style of the book will help readers understand how the law relates to real issues and controversies.

The institutions and sources of law in our legal system are clearly explained, including the roles of lawyers, the courts and the legislature. Illustrative examples and a discussion of actual cases enable students and other citizens to engage with topics such as historical basis of Australian law, Australian law and international law, human rights, procedural fairness and the notions of law and morality.

New stimulus questions and activities included in this 8th edition invite the reader to consider the interrelationship of law, tradition and social values.

Understanding Law is a perfect introduction to the law for students engaging with legal studies and for other academic disciplines at tertiary and senior secondary levels. It is an ideal starting point for any Australian interested in learning more about their legal system.
