Australia’s laws can be made and changed in parliament. New laws or changes to laws are introduced, debated and voted on. They have to be successful in both houses of parliament before they become law.

The courts can also make and change laws. One important case that changed the law involved a snail in a ginger beer bottle. Another involved the development of the law of native title. How Laws are Made and Changed describes making and changing laws in Australian parliaments and courts.
