This month’s books cover public law, counterfeiting and illicit trade, another in the Kenneallys’ Montserrat series and legal education. Public Law and Statutory Interpretation Lisa Burton Crawford, Janina Boughey, Melissa Castan and Maria O’Sullivan, 2017, The Federation Press, pb $110 This book marries two well-known areas of law – public law and statutory interpretation. The justification, which is well-founded, is that statutory interpretation is a branch of public law and is regulated by public law principles. The authors – all academics at Monash University – discuss various topics over 12 chapters. Australian public law takes up the first eight chapters. The principles discussed include the rule of law, democracy, federalism, separation of powers, responsible government, parliamentary sovereignty and judicial power. The origins and evolution of Australian public law, the structure and processes of parliament, the institutions of the executive and the sources of executive power, and the Australian judicial system and judicial independence are also discussed.
