About this issue

The first issue of LawTalk for 2019 catches up on a large number of appointments, honours and changes in the profession and judiciary over the last few months. Our focus is to offer commentary and information related to practising law in New Zealand and working as a member of the legal profession. This includes Practising Well, profiles of members of the profession, updates in various areas of the law, ADR, legal practice, a focus on the practice of law in Gisborne, and some lessons learned from serving on a lawyers standards committee.
