    Hi all,

    I am enquiring if anyone can list some interesting and renown caselaw judgements that would be worth a read.

    Cheers

    I don't know if its your thing, but Sidhu v Van Dyke [2014] HCA 19 has a great 'soapy' plot! Its like the old school cases we had to read in Equity. (And it has a good consideration of law of Estoppel)

    Have a read of R v Gordon Wood, and the subsequent appeal.
    And then the sentencing proceedings in R v Simon Gittany.
    I don't know if they are notable, but they are certainly notorious.
