Australian Native Title Law Second Edition annotates the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) and analyses the common law principles applicable to native title. It explains the essential concepts and principles which underpin it, including relevant principles of constitutional, property and discrimination law, referencing a range of relevant authority and materials.

The First Edition published in 2004 and was comprised of introductory explanatory chapters followed by a detailed annotation to the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) and extensive reforms made in 1998 in light of the Wik decision. Since that time, some 27 amending Acts have come into force.

The much-awaited Second Edition builds upon these foundations by bringing the Act up-to-date and providing detailed commentary on the more important of these amendments, in particular the Native Title Amendment Act 2007, the Native Title Amendment (Technical Amendments) Act 2007 and the Native Title Amendment Act 2009.

The book now draws upon over 1,000 cases, including leading recent High Court decisions such as Queensland v Congoo (2015), Western Australia v Brown (2014), Karpany v Dietman (2013), and Akiba v Commonwealth (2013).

Significant contributions from leading practitioners in the field are included, with a new section addressing proof of native title.

Both new and experienced practitioners, decisions-makers, academics and students alike will find Australian Native Title Law Second Edition of invaluable assistance.
