Pith Without Thubtanth, Brennan, Columb
3 Brennan, Columb Pith Without Thubtanth
Australia Law Institute of Victoria 1992 0908475527 / 9780908475520 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo Kerry Millard 
114 pages. Columb Brennan, who comes from a family of lawyers, journalists and politicians, was bred with an unshakeable trust in the rule of law and the legal profession. In his journalistic career with metropolitan newspapers, Columb spent some years on sub-editorsí tables, worked in London and did stints as a features writer, leader writer and columnist. After 30 years as leader of the law courts staff of the "Herald" and "Weekly Times" during which he was regarded as the doyen of legal journalists, he joined the staff of the Law Institute and has continued to work casually for it as a journalist since his retirement in 1983. Columbís first newspaper article in 1933 was on humour in the law reports. Since then he has always had a eye for the funny things. Reviews: "All the law that seems important at the time will turn up in reported judgments but the characters who gave it life and the anecdotal evidence which is history would be lost without Col Brennanís gentle storytelling and this volume of reports." Max Webberley, practice development advisor and former L.I.J. editor. "Through laughing at the law and lawyers we develop an appreciation of both what is right and what is wrong with the legal system and those who decorate it. The very best form of continuing legal education is between the covers of this book." Jon Faine, ABC Radio Nationalís The Law Report. "It cannot be said that this book is without 'thubtanth'. Like the author, the stories told in this publication get better with age. Thubtanth will definitely grace my bookshelves." J. "Darcy" Dugan. Minor wear to the cover.

This third edition has been fully revised to take into account the developments since 1988. All major courts are dealt with - Magistrates Courts, District and Supreme Courts, the Federal Court and the High Court, and the main specialist courts such as the industrial courts and commissions, the Family Court, children's courts and small claims courts. The courts of all six States, the ACT and the Northern Territory are covered. The emphasis throughout is on an understanding of the constitution and operation of the courts, with comparisons of the many differences between jurisdictions. Australian Courts of Law will be essential reading for law students, and is recommended for anyone seeking an introduction to the Australian courts or the Australian legal system, or looking for further information on their workings and problems.

In any case: true stories from Australia's most notorious criminal Lawyer, Fraser, Andrew
11 Fraser, Andrew In any case: true stories from Australia's most notorious criminal Lawyer
Australia Pier 9 2012 1743362730 / 9781743362730 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
215 pages. Andrew Fraser has made mistakes in his life. Big mistakes. And he has paid a hefty penalty for them. A flash, arrogant and highly successful criminal lawyer, he made a great deal of money defending a huge range of clients before a spectacular fall from grace in the late 1990s through his cocaine addiction. In Any Case is the compelling blue-chip collection of Fraser's fascinating stories of people he has defended over the years as well as his own battles with the law, and himself. Andrew Fraser used to be one of Australia's leading criminal lawyers, but his focus shifted from success to survival in 2001 when he received a seven year jail sentence for involvement with the importation of a commercial quantity of cocaine. Andrew's journey from top lawyer to prisoner, to Crown witness and crusader against official corruption, has led to his becoming a best-selling author and the inspiration for the critically acclaimed television series Killing Time. He currently lives in Melbourne.

Those Tracks On My Face: A Mind-Opening Journey Into the World of Children in Trouble, Holborow, Barbara
13 Holborow, Barbara Those Tracks On My Face: A Mind-Opening Journey Into the World of Children in Trouble
Australia W. Heinemann 1997 0855617381 / 9780855617387 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo Signed by Author
191 pages. No-one knows more about children in trouble than Barbara Holborow. In this best-selling book, Barbara draws on the knowledge and wisdom acquired in her many years as a Children's Court magistrate, where she presided over the best and the worst of children, and those dealing with them. She tells the story of her own life as well, and in these pages there is a wealth of practical advice for those who want the best out of the most valuable thing in our lives - our children. Times change, ideas about 'good parenting' come and go, but what Barbara Holborow knows about children in trouble is still true, wise and relevant - because kids never change. During her 20 years in the Children's Court she witnessed both the tragedy of kids gone wrong and the triumph of young adults re-making their lives. She talked tough but kept her eyes and heart open - and luckily for us parents, wrote this book, which has become a best-seller. Jennifer Byrne, journalist. Author's signed dedication in page v.

Thai Law: Buddhist Law - Essays on the Legal History of Thailand, Laos and Burma, Huxley, Andrew
14 Huxley, Andrew Thai Law: Buddhist Law - Essays on the Legal History of Thailand, Laos and Burma
Thailand Orchid Press 1996 9748299864 / 9789748299860 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
211 pages. Between 1880 and 1930 Thai law was modernised. Using the French civil code as their model, the kings of Siam recast traditional Thai law into western form. This book describes Thai law as it was before 1880. For at least five hundred years - perhaps nearer a thousand years - the Thai have used written law books. During the last twenty years, Thai scholars have systematically searched for these law books through the book chests of monasteries throughout the country. As a result, there are now ten times as many legal manuscripts available for study compared to the number accessible twenty years ago. In this book six experts on history and law describe the new discoveries and assess how far our view of traditional Thai law has to change. The essays have a regional focus, dealing with the Northern Thai traditions of Lanna, the provincial cities of central Thailand, the Southern Kingdom based on Nakhon Si Thammarat, the law texts of Laos, the new discoveries in Burma and finally with Bangkok and its famous Three Seals Code. A number of questions arise; some are answered, others will provoke a lively debate in the future. How should we describe the Thai legal tradition? Did the Thais bring it with them into Southeast Asia? Or is it part of the Buddhist intellectual traditions that reached Thailand from across the Bay of Bengal? Is it enough to call traditional Thai law 'pre-modern', or should the different regions be graded into degrees of pre-modernity? Ex-library markings.
