How Many Cheers for Engineers?

How Many Cheers for Engineers?

Edited by Michael Coper AO and George Williams


On 31 August 1920, the Australian High Court handed down its decision in Amalgamated Society of Engineers v Adelaide Steamship Company Limited (the Engineers Case).

On 31 August 1995, the Faculty of Law and the Centre for International and Public Law at the Australian National University held a seminar to mark the 75th anniversary of the decision in the Engineers Case. The edited proceedings of that seminar are incorporated into this book, which attempts an assessment of the status of Engineers today.
