"Recognition of Foreign Adoptions"

With reference to Bairstow v Queensland Industries Pty Ltd (1955) St R Qd 335, the author discusses problems in regard to fatal accident claims on behalf of adopted children where the relevant foreign adoption statute (in the country where the child was domiciled at the time of adoption) does not confer the status of legitimacy upon an adopted child. The focus is on English Adoption Acts within the context of a fatal accident claim in Australia (Queensland).
