Given the degree of power wielded by Australian government officials and entities, it is unsurprising that government decisions and conduct frequently impact on individuals. To find the most appropriate way to resolve a particular case, practitioners must be able to work across the traditional legal silos, drawing on public and private law principles as well as the important, and often under-valued, roles of non-legal accountability mechanisms.

This book familiarises readers with some of the complexities underpinning this area and covers public law remedies, private law remedies, and statutory remedies. Features the first in Australia to draw together the principal means of challenging and remedying harm caused by government decisions and conduct dedicated coverage of public law remedies (judicial review), private law remedies (tort, contract, equity and restitution), and statutory remedies (merits review, human rights legislation, ombudsmen, investigative agencies and discretionary compensation regimes) Related Titles Creyke, McMillan & Smyth, Control of Government Action Text, Cases and Commentary, 5th ed, 2018 Creyke, Quick Reference Study Guide: Administrative Law, 3rd ed, 2017 Douglas & Hyland, Focus: Administrative Law, 3rd ed, 2014 Howe & Evans, Lexis Nexis Study Guide: Administrative Law, 2nd ed, 2015
