              Prendergast: Legal Villain
                

              Prendergast: Legal Villain (Paperback)

              By Morris, Grant

              "James Prendergast is the most infamous figure in New Zealand's legal history, known mainly for his condemnation of the Treaty of Waitangi as "a simple nullity" in 1877. But during his lifetime Prendergast was a highly respected lawyer and judge. He was arguably New Zealand's dom...inant legal professional from 1865 to 1899, and his good reputation remained intact until the 1980s, when the Treaty of Waitangi finally returned to the centre of New Zealand political life. The more the Treaty has been celebrated, the more Prendergast has been condemned. Who was this legal villain? Was he really a villain at all? This comprehensive biography charts Prendergast's life from his upbringing in the heart of London's legal world through to his long and eventful reign as New Zealand's third Chief Justice. On the way it details his ill-fated adventures in colonial Victoria and his rise to prominence in gold-rush Dunedin. It also analyses Prendergast's pivotal role as Attorney-General during the New Zealand Wars and his controversial part in authorising the invasion of Parihaka. Prendergast explores the man, the lawyer, and the judge. It provides fascinating insights into different parts of the nineteenth-century British Empire and, in particular, colonial Wellington, featuring bitter feuds, ground-breaking judgments, and personal tragedy. This book finally provides the full story behind the name that every New Zealand law student knows"--Back cover.

              Mediation In New Zealand
                

              Mediation In New Zealand (Paperback)

              By Morris, Grant

              Mediation in New Zealand is a significant new text which is designed to be specifically relevant to New Zealand's mediation professionals, academics, and students. In achieving this objective, authors Grant Morris and Annabel Shaw explore New Zealand' s mediation landscape fro...m four different, but interconnected perspectives. The first six chapters examine New Zealand mediation's historical and theoretical context. Chapters 7 to 9 provide a skills-based analysis of mediation practice, and provide practical advice for mediators and mediation advocates. This is followed in chapters 10 to 13 by a systematic overview of prominent mediation specialist areas (including the first evidence-based analysis of commercial mediation in New Zealand). The final chapters examine professional issues relating to mediation, such as accreditation, confidentiality, and the rise of online dispute resolution. These features of Mediation in New Zealand ensure that the book will be a standard reference work for professional mediators, lawyers representing clients in mediation, parties to mediation, professionals who have some engagement with mediation, academics, law and ADR students, and those seeking to become accredited mediators.
