    The high court on constitutional law: The 2010 term
    in University of New South Wales Law Journal (The) , Volume 34, Issue 3 ,  2011 ,  1006-1029
    2010 was an unusually successful year in the High Court for litigants prepared to take on government. Major victories were won, and the Commonwealth and the States suffered corresponding losses. The resulting judgments brought about important new developments in Australian constitutional law, often with the effect of protecting human rights and vindicating the rule of law. What is most apparent though is that the decisions preserved the judicial function and brought about greater reach for the exercise of judicial power. This made 2010 a good year for the High Court and the Australian judicial system in general.
