Indigenous customary law in Queensland courts

26 July, 2010

Here is the Report on pleading and proof of Indigenous customary law in Queensland courts.

This Report examines how indigenous customary law is pleaded and proved in Queensland courts in criminal and civil proceedings. Evidence of indigenous customary law is relevant to matters including native title, criminal law defences, sentencing, succession, family law and heritage protection. […]

This Report does not in any way purport to speak for or represent the views of indigenous Australians, but only to describe the current issues, to highlight the hurdles raised by the State system when indigenous customary law is raised in formal court proceedings, and to identify options for reform.
