17 Introduction to Legislative Research

In Australia, the law is made in our courts by Judges (case law) and by legislation made under the authority of Parliament.

This module will focus on legislation and:

  • developing an understanding of the legislative process
  • identifying parliamentary documents useful for interpreting legislation
  • finding sources of legislative law.
