    • Education

Curious about the legal implications of the lockdown? Do you want to know more on the New Zealand Government’s legal framework during this COVID-19 situation and what it means for us in the future?

In the fourth episode of the series, our Law Faculty academics; Geoff McLay, Dean Knight, Claudia Geiringer, Eddie Clark, Nessa Lynch and Yvette Tinsley continue the discussion on the legal implications of the government’s response to COVID-19.
• Legality of the lockdown and orders under the Health Act
• Cases testing the lockdown (A & B v Ardern habeas corpus appeal; Borrowdale v Director-General judicial review)
• The government's refusal of a compassionate exemption to quarantine being overturned •
What's been happening in Parliament
• Police powers and accountability
• Addressing delay in the criminal courts - bringing back jury trials

This initiative aims to create awareness of the legal implications during this testing situation. The New Zealand legal approach is indeed different. Our academics are glad to continue sharing with you their thoughts and happy to address any questions that you may have. Please send queries to geoff.mclay@vuw.ac.nz.
