Australian Indigenous Law Review

The Australian Indigenous Law Review is an important and unique resource for researchers and practitioners in the field of Indigenous law and policy. Published biannually by the Indigenous Law Centre at the University of New South Wales, the Review provides a platform for scholarly debate and analysis and aids conceptual developments in Indigenous law.

One of the few journals in international legal publishing dedicated exclusively to Indigenous issues, the Review publishes a broad range of current, refereed commentary on legal issues affecting Indigenous peoples in Australia and around the world. The Review also includes summaries of the most significant court and tribunal decisions in both domestic and international spheres. Topics covered by the Review include native title and land rights, human rights, Aboriginal art and intellectual property, public law, Indigenous peoples in international and comparative law, discrimination, criminal justice and Australian legal history.

The Review is structured around two sections:

Commentary: This section contains scholarly, peer-reviewed articles by leading commentators on current issues.

Court and Tribunal Decisions: This section contains case notes on judgments or decisions of particular salience, both domestically and internationally. Where appropriate, notes relating to the progress of proceedings still pending are provided at the end of a case note.
