Welcome to the first issue of the monthly Maori Law Review. The rea-
sons for publishing the review are two-fold.
First, the perennial demand among Maori land law practitioners for a
better decisions service. The need is possibly greater now because of
the recent introduction of Te Ture Whenua Maori (Maori Land Act) 1993.
Second, the imperative which is emerging for general practitioners to
keep abreast of developments in what might be termed general Maori
law. References to Maori concepts and the Treaty of Waitangi now
appear in many major statutes and decisions of the general courts.
Consequently, practitioners face Maori law problems in a surprising
(and growing) number of areas.
Specifically, the review will report on:
Maori Land Court
* Land Court and Appellate Court decisions of interest
 Te Ture Whenua Maori and related law; legislative, regulatory and
rule changes
Waitangi Tribunal
 Practice notes
 Directions/memoranda of interest
General Courts and law
 Decisions impacting on Maori land and other resources eg Resource
Management Act, Rating Powers Act, Maori fisheries legislation
 Law changes in areas impacting on Maori land and other resource
An index will also be provided annually.
The review also offers a Stop Press option - immediate faxed infor-
mation on important decisions made within any month eg the forth-
coming Privy Council judgment on Maori broadcasting.
Guest writers will provide an editorial comment each month.
The editor is a consultant on Treaty issues. He has worked with the
Waitangi Tribunal as legal officer for 5 years and been an adviser to the
Maori Land Court, Head Office.
