Name Suppression: Privacy, Reputation and Fair Trial (On Demand)

This On Demand was recorded on Tuesday 22 June 2021.

Name suppression – or its removal – has recently been in the spotlight in some newsworthy cases. With suppression come interrelated and countervailing interests. On the one hand, clients wish to protect their reputation and privacy, their right to a fair trial and due process. On the other hand, an open system of justice demands that the public is entitled to know what occurs in our courts and proceeds on the principle that members of the public should be trusted to reach their own informed views cognisant of the presumption of innocence.

With reference to recent case law both in New Zealand and overseas, the presenters will address the statutory and tortious framework, strategic considerations and the unenviable balancing act required.

Who should view?

Those practising in criminal law and civil litigation, those wishing to protect reputational and due process rights of clients, and anyone else with an interest in this compelling area of law.
