Comparative examination of a range of issues where law impinges on indigenous peoples.

The purpose for this paper is to explore how the legal systems in Australia, Canada and Aotearoa New Zealand interact with Indigenous Peoples. The paper traces the development of the common law doctrine of native title to help bring alive a range of issues such as rights of consultation, rights to develop, and rights and responsibilities to be involved in the ownership and management of natural resources.

All areas of law impact on Indigenous Peoples, and in many instances it does so in an unique manner. For this reason, students are offered the opportunity to choose any aspect of law that interests them (be it, family, criminal justice, medical, intellectual property, environmental, tax, fisheries etc) and to explore the implications of this specific law for Indigenous Peoples in two countries.
