Event description
Join the Wellington Women Lawyers' Association for an exciting event with Justice Jan-Marie Doogue.

About this Event

Justice Doogue was the Chief District Court Judge of New Zealand since September 2011 before being appointed to the High Court in July 2019.

In her role as Chief Judge, Jan-Marie Doogue has led a number of initiatives to improve the District Courts' response to family and sexual violence. Among these are initiatives to help ensure that Judges have as much information as possible to determine bail applications in family violence cases and that they receive better education about family and sexual violence. In 2016 Justice Doogue initiated a sexual violence court pilot in the District Court with emphasis on improving the court experience for participants through tighter pre-trial case management of jury trials and enhanced specialist education for judges.

Come and join us for a fabulous evening with Justice Doogue!
