There are significant benefits in the recognition of native title under the common law.

For Indigenous people, the potential for access to land and resources provides benefits that cannot be underestimated.

But for the Australian community as a whole, there are also positive outcomes from native title being recognised and protected.

The Mabo judgment acknowledged a fundamental truth about Australia prior to European settlement and has established a legal basis for forms of social justice and growing respect for indigenous human rights that can make our society more inclusive.
