Welcome to our blog The Conflict of Laws in New Zealand: News and Comments, featuring conflicts-related updates, notes, opinion pieces and research. Our aim is to make it easier for readers to stay on top of recent developments, and to stimulate discussion about the field. You may wish to subscribe to the blog by email (see the subscription function on the bottom left hand side of the menu).
Please feel free to comment on posts. If you would like to contribute to the blog as a guest author, please contact us (see the bottom of this post for our contact details). We welcome comments and submissions from anyone. Students, in particular, are encouraged to submit shorter works of research that may otherwise go unpublished. Submissions should be broadly relevant to the conflict of laws in New Zealand (but may focus on overseas developments if they are of general interest to a New Zealand audience).
The blog forms part of our online platform The Conflict of Laws in New Zealand, which also includes a searchable database of New Zealand scholarship on the conflict of laws, and links to sources of the New Zealand conflict of laws and other relevant materials. This project builds on the work of Professor Elsabe Schoeman, who first established the database at the University of Auckland. We are very grateful to Prof Schoeman and the University of Auckland for their support. We would also like to thank the New Zealand Law Foundation for its invaluable financial assistance in creating and developing the site.
