The Practitioner’s Guide to International Law


Australian Offshore Laws Michael White Australian Offshore Laws  brings together in one place a reference to all laws that apply to Australian offshore waters, including: • Constitutional Laws • Petroleum, Mining and Installations Laws

• Criminal Laws • Defence Laws • Immigration Laws

• Fisheries Laws • Customs Laws • Antarctica and Southern Ocean Territories Laws • Offshore Territories Laws • Shipping Laws • Offshore Geographical Areas

White demonstrates the unnecessary complexity of the Australian offshore legal regime and proposes, as a first step towards reform, a review of the Offshore Constitutional Settlement of 1979 (OCS 1979). He discusses the manner of present drafting of such laws as many Commonwealth, State and Territory laws apply offshore but few are drafted in a manner which identifies their limits or recognises their interaction with other offshore laws or with the OCS 1979.
