The Law and Practice of Native Title (5065LAW)

In recent years, native title has emerged as a dynamic and complex area of legal practice. As suggested by the title, this course focuses on the law and practice of native title. In doing so, it looks at the common law principles established in Mabo and the legislative response, the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth). The course explores the development of the legislation, the various amendments and the case law. It also looks at Indigenous issues such as cultural heritage, resource management, land rights and Indigenous sovereignty. The course is designed to introduce students to the increasingly complex web of laws and regulations which impact on native title.
