Very nice parent article on Australian law. Make sure you link all the "see also" pages to this article. Harro5 11:43, May 27, 2005 (UTC)

Somebody should add a seperate page about Australian defamation laws, and not just part of the tort laws page. Aussie defamation laws are notorious.

Proposed Merge of Judiciary of Australia into Law of Australia[edit]

From a quick read the content(although it is uncited) is almost entirely covered in Law of Australia already, any other details can be merged into this article. Once done, Judiciary of Australia can be set as a redirect to Law of Australia#Judicial system. Aeonx (talk) 01:42, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

RIDICULOUS - the judiciary is the judiciary and the law is the law - yes sure link them but dont merge. My search was for Australian Judges and I got exactly what I asked for - it's fine the way it is. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:56, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

No information about environmental policy of Australia?[edit]

  • Environmental policy of Australia redirects to this article, but this article does not discuss Australia's environmental policy. Should any of this information be added to the article? Jarble (talk) 20:11, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Common Law[edit]

I have added an intro as this section had an oblique start, jumping straight into the US Supreme Court. Supcmd (talk) 21:23, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

"In South Australia an award can be made by the district court. In Queensland an award can be made by the court that heard the criminal proceedings. In Tasmania an award can be made by the master, registrar or deputy registrar of the Tasmanian supreme court."

I have removed the sentence above as it made no sense and seemed out of place and incomplete as (1) it did not tie in with the section on common law (2) introduces a concept "Award" without definition and (3) seems incomplete as it only covers 3 states and neglects the rest of Australia. (4) May be better suited to the article Judiciary of Australia. Apologies if I missed something, if it can be improved please re-instate. Supcmd (talk) 21:23, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
