Abstract

The Full Federal Court’s recent return to the native title field, in the Bodney v Bennell appeal decision of April 2008, was another lengthy and important addition to this difficult body of Australian jurisprudence. This article analyses the first-instance decision and the Full Court appeal, highlighting some of the unresolved conceptual difficulties facing the courts in this area and concluding with a comment on the problems attending the adversarial approach to the resolution of claims.
