Just in case 1: a jurisprudential anatomy of Evans v NSW

Chapter


Abstract


  • Earlier in this book, in Chapter 4 to be precise, we took you through a

    few cases and legal principles which revealed how the courts rely on legal theory

    to guide them in their task of reaching a decision. In that chapter, you might

    remember that we talked about a case involving a group of protestors who took

    on the NSW government because it was attempting to limit their ability to protest

    during Catholic World Youth Day (WYD) in 2008.1 We will now return to that

    case to tease out the different theoretical angles that can be drawn upon to explain

    its reasoning, and to critically engage with the principles that the case holds.
