The New Zealand Legal System: Structure and Process (6th ed)
The New Zealand Legal System: Structures and Processes is an introductory text for first-year law students at Aotearoa New Zealand’s universities. Written in a clear straightforward manner that is accessible and easy to follow, The New Zealand Legal System looks at the structures and processes that define and shape our law (the New Zealand constitution, Te Titiri o Waitangi, New Zealand’s court system and the legal profession) and provides a framework for understanding, interpreting and applying legal rules for those coming to the topic of law for the first time.
This edition has been revised and updated to incorporate changes to legislation and statute law, and in particular now includes an expanded discussion of tikanga Māori, Māori and the constitution, and the Bill of Rights. It retains appendices containing practical tools and techniques to help students with their writing and research.
