  • ENABLING THE OPERATION OF RELIGIOUS LEGAL SYSTEMS IN AUSTRALIA BY EXTENDING PRIVATE INTERNATIONAL LAW PRINCIPLES
        Rachel Joseph
        p.105                                                                                      +cite        
        The current failure to recognise and accommodate religious law outside an arbitration context has led to informal religious dispute resolution processes that often lack protections (such as natural justice) which are inherent in Australia’s secular legal system. This article proposes recognising and accommodating religious law through an expansion of common law principles of private international law. It argues that enabling the use of religious law outside an arbitration context would discourage the use of informal religious dispute resolution processes and enable Australia’s secular legal system to reassert control over all legal issues, including matters involving religious significance, by ensuring that the operation of religious law is governed by, and subject to, secular laws.
