This unit provides students with an introduction to law in Australia, but with a special emphasis on pre-colonisation Indigenous Australan legal systems, and how these systems have been impacted by Western legal systems. The unit gives students a basic introduction to various types of law in contemporary Australian society, including criminal, civil and administrative law. In line with the unit's Indigenous Australian focus, there is also an emphasis on Native Title and property law, and the ways in which these may affect Indigenous Australians.
