    Barbara Relph

    Executive Secretary

    Our purpose is to promote legal research and education in New Zealand and we achieve this in several ways. Not only do we publish the New Zealand Law Review, we also organise conferences on topical issues for the legal community, invest in a visiting scholar programme and hold annual writing awards.

    The LRF provides an opportunity for valuable legal research to be shared among those participating in the legal system. LRF has established many important relationships with legal institutions, academics, Judges and practitioners in New Zealand and elsewhere to achieve our objectives.

    Publications Chair

    I am proud to have been involved with the LRF since its inception in 1966, and have watched it grow from very small beginnings as a student organisation into a highly regarded, prominent law reform body. Keep your wits sharpened for the biennial quiz in 2014 - it will be the best one yet!

    The Executive Council of the LRF is made up of legal minds from diverse areas of the law. The Council is the driving force behind conference initiatives and I'm delighted to work with such a talented group.
