Land Claim Campaign 2010 – 3: The Appeals Process
[social_warfare]
CATEGORY: Land Claims

The Appeals process within the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983, allows Land Councils to gain access to the Department’s files relating to a land claim. The Legal Services Unit of NSWALC inspects the files for every NSWALC or LALC claim that has been refused or partially refused. It uses this information to make a recommendation about whether the claim should be appealed.
