|Subject Overview:|| |
The adversary system can be seen as a defining characteristic of a common law legal system. But as times have changed, both the common law and the adversary system of trial have changed. What then are the bases of the adversary system? What corollaries follow from adopting such a mode of trial? What are the challenges with which the Australian legal system must now deal in resolving disputes? How might those challenges be dealt with and are there implications for what we define as the adversary system and, more generally, the rule of law?
