    The LRF provides an opportunity for valuable legal research to be shared among those participating in the legal system. LRF has established many important relationships with legal institutions, academics, Judges and practitioners in New Zealand and elsewhere to achieve our objectives.

    Publications Chair

    I am proud to have been involved with the LRF since its inception in 1965, and have watched it grow from very small beginnings as a student organisation into a highly regarded, prominent law reform body. We hope you enjoyed the biennial quiz in October 2014 - it was the best one yet!

    Our purpose is to promote legal research and education in New Zealand and we achieve this in several ways. Not only do we publish the New Zealand Law Review, we also organise conferences on topical issues for the legal community, invest in a visiting scholar programme and hold annual writing awards.
