University of Auckland Conference: The NZ Supreme Court - The First 10 Years


This conference will consider how the Supreme Court has been performing ten years on. It will look at the extent to which it has met its original objectives, and what trends and characteristics can be discerned from its first decade in existence.

The Law Foundation is providing funding to enable two students from each NZ Law School to attend this event. They will receive assistance with conference fees, travel and accommodation costs.

Findings published from recent Law Foundation-funded AUT University research “NZ’s Supreme Court, One Decade On” is expected to be on sale at the conference*. Panel speakers at the conference, Professors Philip Joseph and Stephen Todd, from the University of Canterbury, both contributed chapters to the AUT book. They will discuss their research at the Auckland conference, looking at constitutional and administrative law and torts respectively.

Registration information is now available
