Product description

Published five years after Te Ture Whenua Maori Act 1993 Maori Land Law was welcomed by the community of practitioners and students for providing an overview and commentary on the working of the Maori Land Court. Together with chapters traversing the nature and evolution of Maori customary law and land tenure, analysis of intricate trust structures and leases, and the relationship between the Act and Treaty of Waitangi, this book quickly found its niche.

The impetus for presenting the second edition of Maori Land Law is raised by:

  • Legislative amendments to Te Ture Whenua Maori Act
  • Ongoing discussion regarding the foreshore and seabed
  • Increased analysis of customary law

Clear and concise, Maori Land Law, Second Edition, will continue to be an invaluable aid to legal practitioners, students, and those with an interest in Maori land issues.
