Part 5 Division 1A Section 52F
52F   Rules of Local Aboriginal Land Councils
(1)  The purpose of this section is to provide rules for Local Aboriginal Land Councils relating to those Councils’ functions and operations.
(2)  The rules prescribed by the regulations as model rules are the rules for a Local Aboriginal Land Council.
(3)  However, a Local Aboriginal Land Council may prepare its own rules and submit them to the Registrar for approval.
(4)  On approval by the Registrar, the rules prepared by a Local Aboriginal Land Council, to the extent that they are not inconsistent with this Act or the regulations, become the rules of the Council to the exclusion of the model rules.
(5)  A Local Aboriginal Land Council’s rules may, with the approval of the Registrar, be amended, repealed or replaced from time to time.
(6)  A Local Aboriginal Land Council may appeal to the Court against the Registrar’s refusal to approve of rules or to approve of an amendment, a repeal or a replacement of its rules.
(7)  On the hearing of an appeal under subsection (6), the Court may direct the Registrar to approve of rules, or an amendment, a repeal or a replacement of rules, specified in the direction.
