Title: Raw law : the coming of the Muldarbi and the path to its demise
Author: Watson, Irene (Irene Margaret)
Issue Date: 1999
School/Discipline: Dept. of Law
Abstract: "This thesis is about the origins and original intentions of law; that which I call raw law. Law emanates from Kaldowinyeri, that is the beginning of time itself. Law first took form in song. In this thesis I argue that the law is naked like the land and its peoples, and is distinguished from that known law by the colonists, which is a layered system of rules and regulations, an imposing one which buries the essence and nature of law."
