A brief update on Native Title compensation claims and cultural protection issues


This webinar walked through time to provide an understanding on how native title came to be recognised, enshrined in law and then subject to future acts and compensation. In this seminar the law will be explained as it currently stands, and an explanation given to put current issues in context.  The focus largely turned to compensation claims which make the next wave of native title disputation in our Courts.

He has been admitted as a legal practitioner in Qld since 1992 and is also an accredited specialist in personal injury law.
