"New Zealand needs a constitution that is easy to understand, reflects our shared identity and nationhood, protects rights and liberties, and prevents governments from abusing power. The current constitution is vague, jumbled and unclear. It can be easily overridden or changed according to political whim. This book aims to change that. It proposes a modern, codified constitution that is accessible and clear, and it aims to stimulate debate about who we are as a nation, and how we should be governed - so we can forge enduring arrangements now, instead of waiting for a crisis to force our hand. [This book] is a case for change, and an impassioned plea for government to be transparent, accountable, responsive, and reflect the values of all New Zealanders."-- Provided by publisher.

It includes a brief guidance given to carrying out legal research involving other (especially related) jurisdictions. It is anticipated to be of greatest use to undergraduates, law clerks, novice law librarians, librarians in public libraries which host depository collections, and self-litigants. It will include short quizzes to aid comprehension and recollection of materials"-- Publisher information.

  • Māori law today
  • Treaty settlements and Māori law
  • Post-settlement governance and Māori law
  • New stories and old stories re-told.
Legal traditions respond to social and economic environments. Maori author and legal scholar Carwyn Jones provides a timely examination of how the resolution of land claims in New Zealand has affected Maori law and the challenges faced by Indigenous peoples as they attempt to exercise self-determination in a postcolonial world. Combining thoughtful analysis with Maori storytelling, Jones's nuanced reflections on the claims process show how Western legal thought has shaped treaty negotiations. Drawing on Canadian and international examples, Jones makes the case that genuine reconciliation can occur only when we recognize the importance of Indigenous traditions in the settlement process.

"Derived from the renowned multi-volume 'International Encyclopaedia of Laws,' this...analysis of constitutional law in New Zealand provides...information on the country's sources of constitutional law, its form of government, and its administrative structure. Lawyers who handle transnational matters will appreciate the clarifications of particular terminology and its application. Throughout the book, the treatment emphasizes the specific points at which constitutional law affects the interpretation of legal rules and procedure. Thorough coverage by a local expert fully describes the political system, the historical background, the role of treaties, legislation, jurisprudence, and administrative regulations. The discussion of the form and structure of government outlines its legal status, the jurisdiction and workings of the central state organs, the subdivisions of the state, its decentralized authorities, and concepts of citizenship. Special issues include the legal position of aliens, foreign relations, taxing and spending powers, emergency laws, the power of the military, and the constitutional relationship between church and state."-- Back cover.

  • A miscellany of intellectual property laws.
From small businesses filing patents to designers protecting their copyright, from a gas station seeing its logo ripped off by a competitor to a blogger posting photographs, New Zealanders encounter intellectual property every day. Sometimes they need to call a lawyer. But at other times, they just need to get a clear understanding of what they can and can't do in order to go about their business. This handy little book, written by one of the country's leading intellectual property lawyers and author of the major texts on the subject, is an accessible introduction to patents, trade marks, copyright and other key elements of IP. Aimed at non-lawyers looking to understand basic concepts and key issues, the book will be a guiding light through the often murky waters of intellectual property law. What can be patented? Do you have to register a trade mark? How does copyright work on the internet? Tackling common questions in concise and accessible prose, Intellectual Property in New Zealand: A User's Guide should sit on the desk of entrepreneurs and designers, journalists, inventors and many more across New Zealand. Costing about three minutes of a lawyer's time, it's a book worth owning.

  • Conclusion.
"James Prendergast is the most infamous figure in New Zealand's legal history, known mainly for his condemnation of the Treaty of Waitangi as "a simple nullity" in 1877. But during his lifetime Prendergast was a highly respected lawyer and judge. He was arguably New Zealand's dominant legal professional from 1865 to 1899, and his good reputation remained intact until the 1980s, when the Treaty of Waitangi finally returned to the centre of New Zealand political life. The more the Treaty has been celebrated, the more Prendergast has been condemned. Who was this legal villain? Was he really a villain at all? This comprehensive biography charts Prendergast's life from his upbringing in the heart of London's legal world through to his long and eventful reign as New Zealand's third Chief Justice. On the way it details his ill-fated adventures in colonial Victoria and his rise to prominence in gold-rush Dunedin. It also analyses Prendergast's pivotal role as Attorney-General during the New Zealand Wars and his controversial part in authorising the invasion of Parihaka. Prendergast explores the man, the lawyer, and the judge. It provides fascinating insights into different parts of the nineteenth-century British Empire and, in particular, colonial Wellington, featuring bitter feuds, ground-breaking judgments, and personal tragedy. This book finally provides the full story behind the name that every New Zealand law student knows"-- Back cover.

This volume provides an essential update on current thinking, practice and research into the use of restorative justice in the area of family violence. It contains contemporary empirical, theoretical and practical perspectives on the use of restorative justice for intimate partner and family violence, including sexual violence and elder abuse. Whilst raising issues relating to the implications of reporting, it provides a fresh look at victims' issues as well as providing accounts of those who have participated in restorative justice processes and who have been victims of abusive relationships. Contributions are included from a wide range of perspectives to provide a balanced approach that is not simply polemic or advocating. Rather, the book genuinely raises the issue for debate, with the advantage of bringing into the open new research which has not been widely published previously. Given its unique experience in the development of restorative justice, the book includes empirical studies relating to New Zealand, contextualized within the global situation by the inclusion of perspectives on practices in the UK, Australia and North America.This book will be key reading for people who work with violent offending of a family nature as well as for those who are interested in the study of family violence.

Law Alive: The New Zealand Legal System in Context 2e builds on the successes of the first edition. Providing a contextual approach to teaching first year law, it promotes active learning and encourages students to see the law as a living part of the political, social, economic and cultural life of New Zealand. The book has been comprehensively updated and revised to reflect recent developments in case and statute law and each chapter features exercises with additional material. Some of the exercises are for students to work on themselves, while others can be used by teachers as tutorial exercises. In both cases, the exercises encourage active engagement with the information found in this textbook.
