An Outline of the Law of Partnership explains and illustrates the major legal principles governing the formation, operation and termination of partnerships and details how the principles work in practice. 

This 5th edition updates all relevant statutory provisions and includes references to all of the major (and many minor) new cases. It also expands existing explanations and, where relevant, includes additional examples to illustrate how the law applies in practice.

The major statutory changes covered include those resulting from passage of the Business Names Registration Act 2011 (Cth) (and the associated repeal of the individual state and territory Business Names Acts), the passage of the Limited Partnerships Act 2016 (WA) (and the associated repeal of the Limited Partnerships Act 1909 (WA)) and the introduction of the Federal Court Rules 2011 (Cth).

Other minor changes to be included are the renaming of the Human Rights and Equal Opportunities Commission Act 1986 (Cth) as the Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986 (Cth) and the passage in New Zealand of the Senior Courts Act 2016 (NZ) to consolidate and replace the judicature Act 1908 (NZ) and the Supreme Court Act 2003 (NZ) (along with the associated introduction of the High Court Rules 2016 (NZ)) and of the Contract and Commercial Law Act 2017 (NZ) to consolidate and replace, inter alia, the Illegal Contracts Act 1970 (NZ) and the Minors’ Contracts Act 1969 (NZ).

New cases covered in this edition include:

  •   Electricity Generation Corp v Woodside Energy Ltd - interpretation of contracts generally;
  • Fazio v Fazio - variation and repudiation;
  • Gaffney v RSM Bird Cameron - expulsion and discrimination;
  • Lederberger v Mediterranean Olives Financial Pty Ltd - statutory agency, misrepresentation of authority and ratification;
