Land Claim Campaign 2010 – 3: The Appeals Process
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.


We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of the lands where we work as well as across the lands we travel through. We also acknowledge our Elders past, present and emerging.
