Māori Land Court - The Māori Land Court (Te Kooti Whenua Māori) and the Māori Appellate Court (Te Kooti Pira Māori) are continued under Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993. The Māori Land Court has been in existence in one form or another since the passing of the Native Lands Act 1862 and the Māori Appellate Court since 1894.
The Māori Land Court has jurisdiction to hear matters relating to Māori land including successions, title improvements, Māori land sales, and the administration of Māori land trusts and Incorporations. It also has jurisdiction to hear cases under the Māori Fisheries Act 2004, the Māori Commercial Aquaculture Claims Settlement Act 2004 and a number of other statutes.
