The latest Part of ABLR includes three articles of interest. The first comes from Andrew Eastwood and seeks to explore policy issues such as whether it is appropriate for regulators to encourage the voluntary provision of a party’s legal advice, and whether a willingness to produce such advice should be seen as a necessary aspect of “full cooperation” with the regulator’s investigation. The second article is by Julie Anne Tarr which looks at striking a balance between commercial and public interests when regulating the coal industry. The final article comes from Philip Williams and explores the range of meaning given to the words “take advantage” as they appear in the monopolisation provisions of the competition laws of Australia and New Zealand.
