Date: 4 August 2021

Time: 10.00am - 11.30am

Location: Northern Club, Auckland

The Resource Management Act has long been known as an unwieldy piece of legislation and piecemeal attempts at improvement have not helped to achieve it’s purpose.
Join us at our next discussion group to hear from two speakers who are very familiar with the issues presented by the RMA.
Firstly, former Court of Appeal Judge Tony Randerson QC and chair of the Resource Management Review Panel will provide his views on the proposed reforms and the legislation intended to replace the RMA.
Then Patrick Lynch, Waikato Regional Council’s Manager – Regional Compliance, will share some examples of the practical difficulties of trying to enforce compliance with the RMA.

Power and money in civil litigation
Civil justice reform is attempting to rebalance access to justice, acknowledging that players in the system have unequal access to power and money. Reforms include reviewing class actions and litigation funding, increasing judicial control of proceedings, initiatives to assist litigants in person (including increasing the jurisdiction of lawyer-less forums like the Disputes Tribunal), and developing specialist jurisdictions to deal with areas creating large numbers of claims. This session will explore these reforms, ask whether they can achieve their aims, and what it might mean for those practicing in the field of insurance law.  

Speaker:
Dr Bridgette Toy-Cronin is a Director and Senior Lecturer at the University of Otago Faculty of Law.
