This guide covers Indigenous or Aboriginal law, and legal issues affecting indigenous peoples.
"Australian law recognises certain aspects of Indigenous law and custom within its own system. This includes such things as traditional rights to fishing, or land rights, and community involvement in rehabilitating or punishing criminal offenders. Some of this law stems from developments in international law, and is generally reflective of greater recognition of the independent cultural identities of indigenous people across the world." (From the Tasmanian Law Handbook - 'What is Indigenous Law?')
