These measures were outrageous and expected men to legitimize their activities in an official courtroom. Men who needed to offer their relatives or exclude their spouses or kids needed to demonstrate that it was important, particularly because excluding a kid was a confirmation of awful conduct. This system gave ladies and their youngsters some insurance from a plainly male-centric culture

?fair dealings? and develop its own system specific for day-to-day commercial/private contracts in Australia.The evolving contract law involves the imposition of a hierarchy of standards on parties that are entering into a contract, depending on the relationship that has developed between them. At the top is the fiduciary duty under which a party must subordinate his or her own interest to that of the other party. In short, the person under such a duty must behave in a commercially altruistic way or act in ?good faith?.

police officers would have free reign to abuse their powers as they please. In the case of Hussein v Chong Fook Kam (1970) Lord Devlin explained suspicion in further detail. “Suspicion in its ordinary meaning is the state of conjecture or summarise where proof is lacking”.
