Biography
Joe Fardin is a mining and Indigenous land rights lawyer. He holds a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Arts (Anthropology), and a Master of Laws with Distinction from the University of Dundee. He has extensive experience in the litigated, arbitral, regulatory reform, and policy development aspects of Indigenous land ownership and mining laws, and the relationship between the two. He has a particular interest in the unique issues surrounding the tripartite interaction between industry, government and Indigenous interests in the minerals industry. To this end he has advised clients in Australia and internationally on land access and mineral sector agreement making from within governments, law firms, NGOs and IGOs and as a consultant. He is now engaging with these issues in his role as Associate Director, Centre for Mining, Energy and Natural Resources Law at the University of Western Australia.
