This course introduces you to the Australian constitutional arrangements for allocating powers to governmental institutions and for establishing the legal relationship between those institutions and the people of Australia. You will examine the law-making powers of the Commonwealth and Queensland parliaments with particular emphasis upon matters about which the Commonwealth may make laws; the relationship between the three branches of government—the legislature, the executive and the judiciary—and the role of the High Court in deciding whether they have acted within their constitutional powers.
