These are the only Federal Constitutional Law notes you will need to understand the subject and prepare you for the exam.

I have summarised and simplified the entirety of the course content, including all case law, legislation, and excerpts from the textbook written by authors/judges/commentators.

The notes include all relevant material from the textbook, Moodle materials, and class notes. The notes are colour-coded (pink = legislation; green = case law; orange = commentators/authors needed for the essay; blue boxes = exam phrases/scaffolds to use) and are easy to navigate.
