Questioning the pros and cons of the adversarial process

A successful Norris Ward McKinnon lecture.

On Thursday 5 October 2017 Te Piringa – Faculty of Law was honoured to host Phillip Morgan QC, and guests Judge Rosemary Riddell, Judge Marshall and Judge David Wilson QC for the annual Norris Ward McKinnon lecture for 2017.

Exploring the pros and cons of the adversarial process with real life examples from the panel of prominent judges, the annual Norris Ward McKinnon lecture has proven to be a huge success.

Facilitated by Phillip Morgan QC, with guests Judge Rosemary Riddell, Judge Marshall and Judge David Wilson QC audience members were treated to anecdotal tales of the adversarial process in a New Zealand setting.

Designed as an annual event and running for over 26 years, the lecture began as a way to affirm and reinforce the relationship between the Hamilton Legal profession, the Hamilton law society and the newly created law school.

Each year the event attracts an audience from the wider community. The response this year to the presentation by professionals, students, staff and members of the public was overwhelming.

We would like to thank the team at Norris Ward McKinnon for making this lecture possible and we would also like to thank Judge Rosemary Riddell, Judge Marshall, Judge David Wilson QC and the Facilitator of the evening, Phillip Morgan QC for sharing their knowledge with us all.

We are already looking forward to next year’s event.
