The Native Title Law Database is the most comprehensive collection of publicly accessible native title case and legislation summaries in Australia. Previously published as What's New in Native Title, the database is a key resource for traditional owners, practitioners and researchers.
Each item includes a summary and link to the source judgement or piece of legislation. Use the Search all function to search by legal issue or subject, court, native title or language group names, year, jurisdiction, and any other keywords or phrases.
Summaries of cases and legislation from 2013 to 2018 are now available on the database. Summaries of earlier legal developments will become available on a rolling basis throughout 2019.
What's New in Native Title will be available here during the transition period.
