Aboriginal customary laws : discussion paper overview


This project commenced in late 2000 by the Law Reform Commission of Western Australia, arose from a proposal to investigate whether there may be a need to recognise the existence of Aboriginal customary laws and have regard to those laws within the Western Australian legal system. The Commission has produced a lengthy Discussion Paper which examines in detail the opportunities for recognition of Aboriginal customary laws in the WA legal system. This overview follows the same structure of the Discussion Paper and addresses the main points of the Commission’s inquiry.
