• Indigneous Legal Relations in Australia

    With Chris Cunneen and Terri Libesman

    Indigenous Legal Relations in Australia is a comprehensive and clearly argued text designed to suit the needs of Law and Indigenous Studies students. An integrated series of chapters, utilising case studies and questions to develop arguments on specific issues, this text studies the issues surrounding Indigenous people’s contact with Anglo-Australian law, dealing primarily with the problems the imposed law has had in its relationship with Indigenous people in Australia.

    This book is broad in scope and covers issues relating to sovereignty, jurisdiction and territorial acquisition; family law and child protection; criminal law, policing and sentencing; land rights and native title; cultural heritage, heritage protection and intellectual property; anti-discrimination law; international human rights law and constitutional law.

    "... this “must read book” ... will go a long way to inform, and hopefully inspire, legal and political science students, to view the legal system and Indigenous peoples through the lens of human rights."
