You are required to answer two (2) questions, both of equal value and both with a 1000 word limit, to a maximum of 2000 words in total.

Question One: (1000 words max)

Critically evaluate the following extract from the judgment of Blackburn J in Milirrpum v Nabalco Pty Ltd (1971) 17 FLR 141 at 171 as a statement of the nature of proprietary interests:

“I think that property in its many forms, generally implies the right to use or enjoy, the right to exclude others, and the right to alienate. I do not say that all these rights must co-exist before there can be a proprietary interest, or deny that each of them may be subject to qualifications.”

You should address each of the three rights listed by Blackburn J. You may also wish to refer to other characteristics of property. This question does not require you to consider Native Title.
