Foundations of Australian Law is pitched exactly at the right level - in terms of both content and language - for business students, for law students, and for international students. This fifth edition has been fully updated to include changes in the law.

This text consists of 12 chapters, divided into four parts. Part A looks at the Australian legal system. Part B addresses torts, and defamation, nuisance and trespass. Part C covers contract law, and is divided into three clear and logical chapters. Part D details consumer law, specifically the sale of goods and consumer protection. Part E contains a Glossary of key terms, Tables of Cases and Acts, and a comprehensive Index.
