This lecture considers the High Court’s treatment of emergency powers cases during the Second World War. It explores the role and meaning of legalism as an adjudicative technique with a particular focus on rulings against the government. It also considers the scope afforded by this style of judicial method – in the adjudication of the executive’s wartime legal powers – to unearth constitutional values.
