Habeas Corpus

Habeas Corpus

Australia, New Zealand and The South Pacific

2nd edition

By David Clark and Gerard McCoy


The second edition includes all new material on Habeas Corpus since the last edition published in 2000. It covers the extensive case law on the Habeas Corpus Act 2001 (NZ), the upsurge in Australian cases, especially those concerning the detention of persons with mental disabilities and those in nursing homes; and the substantial increase in Pacific Island cases made available since the last edition. The revised rules of court, all of which have changed or been renumbered since the last edition, are given a prominent place in the practice and procedure chapter.
