Publication notice: ‘The Law of Politics’

TJ Ryan Foundation Research Associate, and UQ Law School Professor, Graeme Orr, has authored a revised and updated edition of his highly regarded examination of Australia’s political and electoral laws, ‘The Law of Politics: Elections, Parties and Money in Australia’. For details of the publication’s release, see the link and the publisher’s promotional flyer below.

The ABC’s elections analyst, Antony Green, provides a review of the publication: “At the heart of any democratic system lie the rules of engagement, the laws that define the who, how, where and when of elections. The law can also strengthen democracy by empowering the weak and circumscribing the powerful.

“From the basics of elections to the unresolved problems of regulating parties and money, this book sets out the legal framework of politics in Australia. For a country with a long and proud history of open democracy and electoral experimentation, the only surprise is that until now Australia has not had a basic text on the law of politics.”
