Copies of cases / publications / published advice

Most New Zealand decisions mentioned here since 2004 are accessible free through the excellent people at the New Zealand Legal Information Institute (NZLII) and/or through the official Judicial Decisions Online.

Reported copies of these and some older decisions are accessible for subscribers through LexisNexis (for the New Zealand Law Reports and the New Zealand Administrative Reports) and Thomson Reuters (for other specialist reports).

United Nations treaty body decisions and records of periodic reviews are available through the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights database. Archived webcasts of some periodic review hearings in which I appeared are here.

Some of the New Zealand and United Nations decisions involving issues of international law before the New Zealand courts are accessible to subscribers through the Oxford International Law in Domestic Courts database and/or through the International Law Reports.

Most of my published advice to the Attorney-General as Crown Counsel for human rights law (to 2014) on the compliance of bills with the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990 is accessible here or, if that doesn’t work, with some difficulty through the archived Ministry of Justice website here at Policy/Constitutional policy and human rights/Human rights/BORA advice to the Attorney-General.

Public reports of the inquiries by the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security to which I contributed during my term as Deputy Inspector-General (2014-2017) are or will once released become accessible through from the Office of the Inspector-General.

Some of my professional publications are accessible here.
