New Zealand Lives in Public Law
The New Zealand Centre for Public Law (NZCPL) presents the Lives in New Zealand Public Law series.
In this series we talk to an individual who has contributed to the shaping of New Zealand’s public law. The interviews are partly biographical and also include discussions about contemporary public law issues, and will be of interest to both students and academics, as well as to the general public.
In this episode, the NZCPL Director Professor Joel Colón-Ríos talked to Sir Kenneth Keith about his early life and education, about his role in the judiciary and experience in law reform, and about some of his views about sovereignty and the Treaty of Waitangi.
In this episode, the NZCPL Director Professor Joel Colón-Ríos talked to Emeritus Professor Tony Angelo about his early life and education, his experience in the teaching of comparative law, his work in small island states in the Pacific and beyond, and his views on NZ constitutional future.
In this episode, the NZCPL Director Professor Joel Colón-Ríos talked to Dame Sian Elias, Chief Justice (1999-2019) and Distinguished Fellow at the Faculty of Law at Te Herenga Waka – Victoria University of Wellington.
