Description

Constitutional Law provides an authoritative treatment of constitutional law in New Zealand. It is drawn from Constitutional and Administrative Law in New Zealand (4th Edition) by Philip A Joseph, the authoritative text on public law in New Zealand. The author is an acknowledged authority on New Zealand constitutional and administrative law.

The work consolidates the high scholarly standards of the earlier editions in analysing New Zealand’s public law arrangements and represents a thorough and comprehensive revision of all areas of public law.  It explores the doctrinal foundations of public law and critiques modern legislative and judicial developments, integrating the most recent decisions of the courts as part of the in-depth analysis of public law principles. The work is also critical of several case law developments and offers alternative perspectives for promoting New Zealand’s public law processes.

In a press release from the University of Canterbury about the work Professor Joseph comments that public law, like rust, never sleeps. He goes on to say:

"It is in moments of adversity that ordinary folk turn to the law. The Canterbury earthquakes exposed dramatically how much we depend on the law for the protection of rights. The Government’s decision to offer to purchase vacant land and uninsured red zone properties at 50 percent of the 2007 rateable values was challenged in the courts and found to be unlawful."
