This foundational student text provides readers with a contextual understanding of the law and the legal system, from the history and evolution of legal concepts to the institutional limitations of law and justice.
Fully revised and restructured, the 5th edition includes:
- a new chapter on First Nations Peoples, Law and Injustice which covers the Uluru Statement of the Heart, the Voice to Parliament and legal pluralism;
- an updated chapter on Gender Equality with new material on intersectionality and transgenderism;
- new discussion questions at the end of each chapter; and,
- key case studies which illustrate the law in practice.
