MPS Law’s Principal Solicitor, Michael Pagsanjan, will be attending the National Native Title Conference in Darwin next month to present about native title law.

Michael will be presenting on “Pressure points and leverage in negotiating a just native title settlement”. His presentation will first highlight some of the harsh realities of native title negotiations. Second, the likely flash points – or sensitivities – from the differing perspectives of some the various stakeholders in native title negotiations will be explored. Once those potential flash points are understood, some opportunities for finding leverage to get better deals will be detailed.

The National Native Title Conference is facilitated by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies and the Northern Land Council. Several hundred delegates are expected to attend.
