Ok, It is not A, becuase that is a feature of Common Law, it is not C, becuase C becuase that was under the Mabo Case, not D, becuase that was a british doctrine, the BEST answer is B - Dispute resolution.

Customary Law does not only refer to Aborigines, it refers to all customary laws whihc were customs used as proceedure to deal with disputes, even the Enlgish used these, and as it became more complex, courts were established.

They have nothing to with the general idea, but the question said nothing about Aboriginal Customary Law.

Native title is people's right associated with land and water, common with Aboriginal customary law, however not English Customary Law

I picked B too, for the same reason said by adamj, but I've never come across dispute resolution before. The only reason I picked it was because it seemed least incorrect. From the confusion, it seems like alot of people are in the same boat.

Dispute resolition was mainly seen in Aboriginal Customary Law in terms of our studies, in year 11.

Guys tha answer is b. There is no arguing this one, arguably the easiest question on the paper.
The answer is NOT native title. Native title is something invented by the common law.
Dispute resolution is the basis of customary law, the primary aim being to resolve disputes and return to a harmonious society (when you think about the processes of customary law, eg meeting together as a community to solve problems, this is the obvious and ONLY possible answer.)

Don't bother arguing on this one, there is no question that it is b. I am actually really floored that people are debating about this one.
