The first issue of a new New Zealand criminal law journal has been published, and it may be freely downloaded from the internet (click here).
Te Wharenga - New Zealand Criminal Law Review is a collaboration between New Zealand's law schools, the judiciary, and the New Zealand Criminal Bar Association.
The objective is to provide a regular outlet for informed discussion of matters of New Zealand criminal law, evidence and procedure, and also of wider matters of criminal justice and policy.
General Editor Kris Gledhill of AUT Law School says the plan is to produce the Review quarterly. He says it is hoped that open access can be retained, with the journal kept as a PDF that can be printed off.
