The prevalence of powers of attorney --- particularly enduring powers of attorney--- makes this book increasingly important over time, especially in view of Australia’s ageing population. Powers of Attorney 3e is not confined to Australian law but uses law from the principal common law countries to contextualise our law, and to provide guidance where Australian law may be lacking.
- Updated commentary and timely analysis of interstate powers with respect to enduring powers of attorney and guardianships/directives
- Covers challenges for lawyers in providing clear explanations to clients concerning the authority, time and ramifications of a proposed enduring power of attorney
