Native Title and Land Law - The Laws of Australia provides comprehensive coverage and analysis of common law principles relating to, and the statutory regulation of native title and land law in Austalia.

Native Title and Land Law - The Laws of Australia provides easy to read and insightful commentary on topics including:

  • constitutional status;
  • Aboriginal customary law;
  • native title at common law;
  • native title legislation;
  • land Law federally and state & territory based;
  • cultural heritage.
This material is also published as part of Title 1 “Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders” of The Laws of Australia legal encyclopaedia. As such it retains that work’s easy-to-read style: each main paragraph opens with a bold proposition that encapsulates the relevant legal principle, while the text that follows sets out and analyses complexities, nuances and developments in the law. Extensive referencing makes The Laws of Australia the ideal starting point for research across any Australian jurisdiction.

Justin Carter is a Barrister at the Queensland Bar and was Associate to The Hon Justice Keane (then on the Queensland Court of Appeal), Justices Bell and Barry of the Family Court of Australia, and judges of the Federal Court of Australia. Justin is subeditor of the Queensland Reports and contributes as an updating author for the civil procedure and government titles in The Laws of Australia.
