New Zealand Law Society - Health Law Committee

Health Law Committee

The Wellington Health Law Committee is made up of a diverse group of lawyers working in all areas of the health sector. 

We meet every six weeks to discuss and share our knowledge about current issues in health law. Our members also contribute to the National Health Law Committee's submissions when law reform issues arise.

Our meetings also have a CPD component, where our members (and sometimes guests) present and share their knowledge.

Over the past year, we have had a range of CPD presentations including discussions on Spencer v Attorney General [2015 ] NZCA 143; the Vulnerable Children Act; the amendments to the Coroners Act; Equal Pay settlement and legislation; and the possible implication of the Bawa-Garba case (UK) for medical negligence in criminal law.
