Law of Limitation is a new title as part of the LexisNexis Black & Silver series. Addressing what is a critical field for all lawyers, this text provides a comprehensive introduction to the structure and application of limitation legislation, and offers detailed commentary on particular areas of law in which limitation periods are relevant.


Format: ePub


Law of Limitation is a comprehensive title focussing on the structure and application of limitations legislation. Australian limitation laws differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and recent attempts to implement uniform legislation across all jurisdictions have not been achieved. Additionally, different limitation periods apply across a range of areas of legal practice, and so having a definitive resource on limitations is of critical importance for legal practitioners.

This title is an excellent reference for the core legal market, including lawyers (especially in litigation), barristers, government and the judiciary. It is well researched and and punctuated by reference to developments in this area, including law reform outside of Australia.

Law of Limitation is part of the LexisNexis Black and Silver series.
