Summary
"This paper is intended to provide a broad summary of the approach of Australian courts to Aboriginal customary law in the areas of criminal law, civil law and family law. Because this paper was produced to inform the Law Reform Commission of Western Australia's Aboriginal customary law reference, the primary focus of the paper is the development of the common law position on customary law in Western Australia. However, there are instances where there is no Western Australian precedent or where the law has been shaped by decisions of courts in other states or territories or by the High Court. This paper therefore refers extensively to relevant cases in all Australian jurisdictions."
