Event To mark the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the Federal Court of Australia, this collection brings together current and former Federal Court Justices, and leading academics and practitioners to consider the Federal Court's past, present and future contributions to the development of Australian law. Although first established as a court of limited jurisdiction, the Federal Court's jurisdiction now touches on almost every aspect of Australian law, and its impact on the development of legal principles and Australian society has been considerable. This unique collection offers an invaluable resource on the history of the Court, its place in the legal landscape, its many contributions across the broad array of public, private and procedural law and its emerging areas of jurisdiction
