Summary
Discusses the relationship between Indigenous Australians and Australia's legal system; although there is formal equality under Australian law, it is often undermined by historical failure to acknowledge cultural differences and accommodate different perspectives within the justice system; imprisonment rates are 14 times the national average; the Australian system must be made more meaningful and accessible to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; argues for a commitment to provide not just a formal equality before the law but substantive equality as well
