RC Australian - New Zealand Chapter

25 Feb 2007

Australia/New Zealand Chapter of the IARLJ

biannual International Conference, probably around October but at a time

The Chapter aims to identify and analyse specific issues and
jurisprudential developments relating to the region and to discuss the
potential influence of developments from other jurisdictions.

The Chapter is keen to find means to encourage judges and
decision-makers from other parts of the region to join our biannual regional
deliberations. It is possible this Chapter will develop into the Asia
Pacific Chapter as more involvement from other countries in the region
becomes possible.

The Chapter has no secretariat and relies entirely on volunteers
from amongst members.

You may obtain details of the plans of the Chapter by contacting
OR by contacting any members of the IARLJ from
Australia or New Zealand.
