Product description

Law of Agency explains the principles surrounding agency law from an Australian perspective. It refers extensively to relevant Australian case law and statutory provisions even as it offers context in main common law jurisdictions, such as the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, and New Zealand — and to some extent, Hong Kong and Singapore. In addition to cataloguing the relevant principles, this book provides commentary and analysis on areas of uncertainty and dispute through regular references to the academic commentary in the field.
