Inquiries to examine how systems best serve stakeholders

DISABLED people and indigenous groups have just three weeks to submit their thoughts on two major Australian Law Reform Commission inquiries.

Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus released the terms of reference for the inquiries in the Native Title system and Legal Barriers for People with Disabilities on Friday.

The two inquiries will examine how both systems best serve stakeholders involved in the native title and legal system.

Mr Dreyfus said the inquiries come 20 years after the Native Title Act and Disability Discrimination Act came into being.

The Native Title inquiry will examine the economic potential of Title for indigenous Australians, while the other inquiry will look at access to justice for people with a disability.

Terms of reference for both inquiries are available at http://www.ag.gov.au and submissions can be lodged until June 28.
