New Zealand. Māori Land Court

MLC (Māori Land Court), Te Kooti Whenua Māori

Specialist court in New Zealand that hears matters relating to Maori land. The Maori Land Court was established in 1865 as the Native Land Court. In 1954, the name changed to the Maori Land Court. Originally the court was established to translate customary Maori land claims into legal land titles recognisable under English law. In 1993, the Te Ture Whenua Maori Act, expanded the court's jurisdiction to allow it to hear cases on all matters relating to Maori land.
