CCCS Seminar: Wainohu v New South Wales [2011] HCA 24 (23 June 2011)

Friday, 26 August, 2011 - 13:00 to 14:00

A/Prof James Stellios

Over the last two years we have seen a renewed interest by the French High Court in the Kable principles. In that period, the High Court has relied on the Kableline of authority to invalidate State provisions on four occasions: International Finance Trust Co Ltd v NSW Crimes Commission, Kirk v Industrial Relations Commission (NSW), South Australia v Totani and, most recently, Wainohu NSW. In this seminar, Associate Professor James Stellios will consider the most recent decision in Wainohu, and reflect on the trends that are developing in this Kable line of cases.

James Stellios is an Associate Professor at the ANU College of Law where he teaches public law. His primary research interest is constitutional law and, in particular, Chapter III of the Constitution. In 2010 he published The Federal Judicature: Chapter III of the Constitution. Prior to joining the ANU College of Law in July 2001, he spent a number of years in legal practice, including as Counsel Assisting the Solicitor-General of the Commonwealth.
