These notes have summarised the content into concise scaffolds, as well as comprehensive cases & legislation summaries. This is designed to help you tackle any problem question and has helped me to achieve 87% in the open-book final exam, which comprised 2 problem questions in relation to topics 1, 6-9. I recommend this for anyone seeking to do well in the final exam (weighted 70% of your total mark).

Topics covered:

- A responsible executive - executive branch formation; reserve powers; parliament's powers to compel production of government information.

- Executive powers - the inherent (non-statutory) powers and capacities of the Commonwealth executive.

- Oversight of the executive - Parliamentary oversight of delegated legislation; freedom of information; complaints and integrity agencies.

- Constitutional safeguards for judicial power.
