Indigenous Legal Water Forum

An Indigenous Legal Water Forum will be held in Wellington at Westpac Stadium, Monday 27th July 2009 with registration restricted to 100 ($100 registration fee) see: www.otago.ac.nz/law/nrl.

The June 12 issue of NZLawyer has an article by Jacinta Ruru about Maori rights to govern water. She says that with so much going on in the fresh water sphere "...it is timely to bring together a group of legally trained experts to gaze both inwards and outwards on the rights of Indigenous peoples to govern fresh water".
