Powers of Attorney is an essential authoritative work on the law of powers of attorney in Australia. Each of the five parts that make up the book define, respectively, the legal concept of a power of attorney, cataloguing the elements that go to creating a power of attorney, identifying the scope of authority conferred on an attorney under a power, explaining the legal effect of vesting in an attorney authority under a power and, finally addressing the means whereby attorneyship can terminate.

 

While the work focuses on Australian law, it also adopts an extensive cross-jurisdictional approach. References to case law, statutory initiatives and commentary from the other common law jurisdictions are included throughout to provide context and counterpoints.
