Law Books Terms of Sale

Pricing Policy

Law Books sells books at the recommended retail price (RRP) or less, (titles ordered direct from overseas suppliers and a small number of locally supplied titles may incur a surcharge). Titles are occasionally put on sale at additional discount.

For members of the LIV the applicable members' discount is deducted from the RRP (excluding titles on sale or marked nett).

Product Availability

We make every effort to keep stock levels up to date. However, occasionally a book listed may be out of stock. In this case we may need to order the book from the publishers/distributor. After you place your order, we'll advise you as to how long we think the book will take to be delivered to us.

When we need to order an item in for you, the price shown may no longer be current, as new stock shipments may have different prices, we will inform you of the new price and seek your instruction before proceeding.

Returns Policy

Our policy is to credit or exchange publications that have been misbound or where an error in bookshop processing has occurred.

All other return requests will require a "Returns Authorisation Number". Please note Legal Forms are not returnable.

To obtain a Returns Authorisation Number please follow these steps:

  • Fax the transaction/invoice number and a copy of your original order to (03) 9607 9326 with your reason for wishing to return items.
  • If your request to return products is accepted Law Books will fax back a RAN (Returns Authorisation Number).
  • Please include this Returns Authorisation Number when you return the approved product.
  • Law Books will then provide an exchange or credit for the amount. (Law Books will forward a cheque for any authorised refund. Please note Law Books is unable to provide a cash refund).

Returns will not be accepted unless a request for a Returns Authorisation Number has been received within 14 days of sale.

Cancelling Online Orders

You may cancel all or part of your online order, provided you contact us before you receive the email notification that your order has been despatched.
