Privacy law at a cross roads: can the courts provide some direction?

Wellington: Tuesday 6 November 2018: 6:00pm-7:30pm

Auckland: Thursday 8 November 2018: 5:00pm-6:30pm

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear the Court of Appeal judge, the Hon Justice Helen Winkelmann, discuss ‘Privacy Law at a Crossroads: Can Courts Provide Some Direction?’ She will discuss informational privacy, including an overview of the state of data protection in New Zealand and internationally.

Justice Winkelmann will focus on the Privacy Bill, Europe’s GDPR and updated OECD rules, as well as offer her commentary on the absence of protection under the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act.

The Sir Bruce Slane Memorial Lectures – in Auckland and Wellington – will be chaired by Dame Silvia Cartwright PCNZM DBE QSO.

The two lectures by Justice Winkelmann mark 25 years of New Zealand’s Privacy Act and are in honour of the nation’s first Privacy Commissioner, Sir Bruce Slane, who passed away in 2017.

The Sir Bruce Slane Memorial Lectures are brought to you in partnership with the Privacy Foundation NZ.
