Summary

The Native Title Legislation arose out of the landmark Mabo decision. This new legislation will reverberate on the whole of Australia. It will affect forever our dealings in land management, natural resources, property development, and valuation. In this collection by experts in law, native title claims, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander legal matters, this far-reaching legislation is viewed from many angles. Extending beyond Mabo's recognition of indigenous rights to land, the Native Title Act defines how native title rights will be formally recognised, implemented and protected.
