The 2009 edition includes 4 new decisions of the High Court, as well as other important new decisions delivered by Australian courts in the past year.

The book differs from other casebooks in a number of ways:

  • Meticulous line-by-line editing technique
  • All judgments are incorporated, including dissents
  • All significant doctrinal content is preserved
  • Useful citations and footnotes are retained
  • Running reference to original paragraph or page numbers
  • Cases are presented in chronological sequence
  • There is a comprehensive index

The book provides practitioners and students with reliable and inclusive abridgments that retain the actual words of the judgments but can be read in a fraction of the time needed to read the originals.
