Aboriginal Peoples’ interaction with legal systems– Option 9
An Aboriginal Studies unit, where students focuses on the the relationship and interactions between Aboriginal Peoples and Australian legal and political systems.
Students explore Aboriginal Peoples’ initiatives and advocacy to access their rights, and to overcome disadvantage in legal and political systems. A case study on the local or regional community’s interactions with an aspect of the legal system can form the basis through which Option 9 is studied, or it can be undertaken separately at any point throughout the option.
