[Extract] The role of the law in the dispossession and oppression of
Indigenous peoples world-wide is not a new idea. In Australia, in
particular since the rise of critical race studies
in the academy and the
momentum of the reconciliation movement in wider Australian
legal scholars have increasingly engaged in critical inquiry
into diverse areas of law, brought together under the subject field that
might be described as Indigenous Australians and the law.
Additionally, law schools have in the past decade or so apparently
attempted to design and deliver curricula that engage with Indigenous
experiences before the law, though with varying degrees
of success. The challenge for the academy of incorporating Indigenous
contexts into the law curriculum remains.
