Event description
A Public Lecture on The Problem of Improperly Obtained Evidence in New Zealand Criminal Courts

About this event

Associate Professor Scott Optican of the Faculty of Law will discuss one of the more important and ongoing issues in New Zealand criminal justice: what do we do with evidence obtained illegally or unfairly by the police? Should judges allow it to be used in criminal trials or not?

Using real life examples from current cases (involving both traditional and undercover policing), Associate Professor Optican will discuss current New Zealand law, the principles involved and the pros/ cons of different approaches to the treatment of improperly obtained evidence.

Audience participation and questions will be invited and encouraged.

Seminars, conferences, and events may be photographed or filmed for use by the University and the media in hard copy and electronic publications including in newsletters and brochures and posted on the University or conference websites to promote subsequent events and the University. If you do not wish to be photographed or filmed, please inform the organiser or photographer.

Please note all University of Auckland campuses are entirely smoke-free. This includes both indoor and outdoor areas and we ask that all alumni, staff, students, and guests comply with this.
