First Nations Cultural Heritage – Legislating Country and Culture provides a more detailed and practical exploration of cultural heritage legislation at both a state (and Territory)and Commonwealth level. The package will detail the differing authorisation processes for specific activity types. It will also examine the interaction between state and Commonwealth law and land rights and cultural heritage processes.

Professional Development Modules

Storey & Ward Professional Development Modules provide comprehensive analysis of the statutory, regulatory and cultural environment in which First Nations rights are activated in Australia and internationally.

They provide an opportunity for continuing professional development (CPD) for legal, cultural heritage and government operating in these areas.

Our core module, Native Title and Cultural Heritage – An Australian Perspective, provides a solid foundation to understand the history and theory of land justice in Australian legislation, and provides an opportunity to hear first-hand from Traditional Owners about their experiences.

Our continuation training modules, including First Nations Cultural Heritage – Legislating Country and Culture, provide more detailed examination of cultural heritage legislation and the broader land rights environments in each state or territory, future acts, international rights and the impact of new technologies.

Each module provides a full day, in-person session with accessible course materials and an opportunity to hear from Traditional Owners about lived experience.
