Book Launch: ‘Compensation for Native Title’ by William Isdale

ALRC Senior Legal Officer Dr William Isdale will officially launch his Holt Prize winning book, Compensation for Native Title, at the Commonwealth Law Courts on 30 June 2022.

Compensation for Native Title surveys the current state of the law and explores future directions. It provides the first extended analysis of this emerging body of law. Apart from considering compensation under the Native Title Act, the book also explores the availability of common law remedies for native title holders, and considers the implications of the Commonwealth Constitution’s guarantee of “just terms” for acquisitions of property.

The event will be hosted by the Federal Court of Australia, The Federation Press and the University of Queensland’s School of Law. Professor Rick Bigwood, Dean of Law at the University of Queensland Law School, will chair the event. The Honourable Justice Andrew Greenwood and Dr Isdale will provide a brief overview of this emerging and significant area of law.
