Public Law Toolbox (Paperback, 2nd edition)

By Chen, Mai

Public Law Toolbox, 2nd Edition, is an indispensable resource enabling business people, lawyers, industry associations and non-governmental organisations to deal successfully with government. All New Zealanders have to interact with government in some capacity. But not all citiz...ens and businesses know how to work successfully with government, or how to challenge government decisions on administration or policy, or parliamentary decisions on law making, which detrimentally affect them. There is an entire "toolbox" of public law mechanisms that sits alongside traditional commercial law remedies. This book describes the tools available and how to use them for greatest effect; assisting those wanting to influence policy and law reform issues for business, not-for-profit organisations or democratic reasons. It also assists those wanting to resolve disputes concerning administrative and government decision-making, and advises businesses on how to use the toolbox to resolve disputes with competitors. The book will also be useful for government and officials to understand their legal, transparency and accountability obligations and the risks that they face, taking political and public opinion factors into account.
