‘No higher duty’: Mabo and the failure of legal foundation
Fitzpatrick, Peter (2002) ‘No higher duty’: Mabo and the failure of legal foundation. Law and Critique 13 (3), pp. 233-252. ISSN 0957-8536.
The first half of the paper shows how the imperial quality of the common law putatively accommodates the demand for legal foundation. The second half takes the Mabo decision as a test of this supposed ability and finds it foundationally wanting. The continuing insistence of the indigenous presence provides the key.
