Abstract

This article reviews the High Court's emerging jurisprudence on the institutional integrity of state courts. It begins by surveying the Court's recent decisions in this area. The authors argue that these decisions can usefully be placed into four interrelated categories, concerning the constitution of state courts, impermissible grants of jurisdiction, impermissible withdrawal of jurisdiction and procedural guarantees. After summarising the central principles arising from the rulings, the authors consider four possible broader implications, focusing particularly on Kirk v Industrial Court of New South Wales. It is argued that Kirk has potentially wideranging implications for the powers of state legislatures to restrict judicial review and modify the requirements of natural justice.
