Te Piringa - Faculty of Law, University of Waikato and Harkness Henry are inviting to the 25th annual Harkness Henry lecture.

In 1992 Harkness Henry Lawyers partnered with the then Waikato School of Law for the inaugural lecture. The annual public lectures’ topics address issues relating to the development of New Zealand jurisprudence. The lecture is traditionally published as the lead article in the subsequent Waikato Law Review.

The right of a defendant to a fair trial and the public’s right to a fair and properly funded criminal justice system has been compromised in recent years and remains vulnerable to further compromise.

This vulnerability stems from a variety of sources including: reduced legal aid for defence lawyers; unavailability of expert witnesses for the defence; reduced and changed funding for Crown solicitors and Crown Law; the effect of lobby groups such as the Sensible Sentencing Trust; and some recent legislative changes including the three strikes law; the effect of the media especially when reporting sentencing; victim involvement in sentencing; and various
policing initiatives.

The Honourable Sir Ron Young, a former High Court and Chief District Court Judge, will look at these and other issues in the annual Harkness Henry lecture.

Pre-lecture drinks: N.1.03, New Law Building
Lecture: Lecture room PWC (WMS.1.04), Management Building.

Please RSVP to by 31 August 2016 for catering purposes.
