Foreword from the Chief Justice of New Zealand.

The New Zealand Ministry of Justice, on behalf of the New Zealand Judiciary, and with the support of funding from a Judicial Pacific Participation Fund (JPPF), through New Zealand's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade Partnerships Fund, is providing the opportunity for Pacific judges to engage with and learn from their peers across the Pacific and New Zealand.


We are very pleased to be part of this new and exciting initiative which will help to strengthen partnerships between NZ and Pacific judiciaries and assist in establishing greater collegiality of judicial officers throughout the Pacific.


We look forward to welcoming you at our conferences and seminars where we are sure you will gain more skills and knowledge on best practices to assist you in your day to day court work.


Rt Hon Dame Sian Elias, GNZM
Chief Justice of New Zealand
