Society as a whole needs laws and regulations to keep it managed and under control, and early South Australian was no exception. With police officers, law courts, and judges all who did their part to keep the peace, South Australia became a place for many many thousands of emigrants from all corners of the world.

As with the law today, there were rules regarding the 'administration of justice' back in the 1800s, and this manual is just one example. Published in 1871 it was a guide to the courts as to what the laws and acts of the day were, together with the sentences and offences, as well as other law court duties.

Divided into four sections, part 1 is titles 'Summary Convictions and Orders', part 2 'Miscellaneous Duties of Justices', part 3 'indictable Offences', and part 4 'General Matters'. Part of the appendix contains details of actual court cases which cover a range of topics.

This is a useful guide for any law historian, or for those wishing to know more about the early laws in South Australia.
