- Thesis title: History and the Interpretation of the Banking Power
- Abstract: The thesis looks at how history can be used in constitutional interpretation with a particular focus on how an understanding of history can enhance our understanding of the scope and meaning of s51 (xiii) of the Australian Constitution ('the banking power'). The thesis argues that a purely textual approach to constitutional interpretation can unintentionally deplete the significance of constitutional provisions and uses the banking power as a case in point to support this claim.
