By Law Institute Journal


This month’s books cover interlocutory appeals, superannuation and insurance, sentencing, DNA evidence and Australia as an international citizen. Total and Permanent Disablement in Superannuation and Insurance John A Riordan, Wolters Kluwer/CCH Australia, 2016, $70 This book deals with the law pertaining to claims for total and permanent disablement benefits under superannuation deeds and insurance policies. It is divided into 13 concise chapters. It first introduces the fundamental principles and underpinning law concerning the power of superannuation trustees and insurers to accept or deny such claims (Chapters 1 to 4). It then considers the legal construct of “disablement” (Chapters 5 and 6), and examines the processes that a claimant may need to consider and/or go through to successfully challenge a denied claim (Chapters 7 to 15). Throughout there is comprehensive discussion of Australian case law and succinct summaries and conclusions dispersed at appropriate junctures. Extensive use of quotes from judicial decisions is of immense value. The book is suitable for academics, practitioners and decision-makers. David Kim, barrister
