Autochthonous essential: state courts and a cooperative national scheme of civil jurisdiction

Mortensen, Reid (2003) Autochthonous essential: state courts and a cooperative national scheme of civil jurisdiction. University of Tasmania Law Review, 22 (2). pp. 109-148. ISSN 0082-2108


Through the 1980s and 1990s, Australian governments and courts developed a uniform scheme for the exercise of civil jurisdiction across the country. The twentieth century saw increasing recognition that within federal and complex political associations, there is generally a positive relationship between the ability of courts to enforce their judgments throughout a federal or transnational market area and its economic and social integration. However, a willingness to let courts' judgments 'circulate' freely over internal borders in a multistate area also suggests confidence that those courts exercise proportionate civil jurisdictions that are acceptable to all of its polities.
