It examines in detail federal and state class action statutory provisions and case law along with the representative action procedures available under the rules of the various Australian courts. There is also detailed coverage of statutory provisions which facilitate class action or group proceedings in the areas of discrimination, migration, trade practices, corporations law, industrial relations and privacy. In addition to a review of relevant statutory provisions, case law and procedural rules the book examines laws relating to fee arrangements, the funding of class action litigation and costs. Numerous legal and practical issues relating to the commencement, conduct and conclusion of class action and representative proceedings are reviewed.

The book also provides comparative information on class action litigation in other jurisdictions including England and Wales, Canada and the United States. This includes an examination of the potential for Australian claimants to bring proceedings in foreign jurisdictions. The author has had considerable practical experience in the conduct of group and class action proceedings before Australian, English and United States courts and has taught litigation and a post graduate course on class actions and complex litigation at the University of Sydney Law School.

Critique:

...Dr Cashman is in a unique position to survey not only the history but the current state of the law in several jurisdictions; developments that are happening overseas; and the way such actions can be organised, funded and brought to a successful conclusion. For the opponents of class actions, this book is a devil's catechism. For supporters, it will be an indispensable "how to do it"... Dr Cashman will be one of the leading Australian experts in the field. He is to be praised for his uniquely devoted work on this subject and for his willingness to share his knowledge and experience in this useful text... - From the Foreword by The Honourable Justice Michael Kirby, High Court of Australia
