Law with Dean Knight - The Privy Council

From Nine To Noon, 11:33 am on 17 December 2014

Victoria University Law Lecturer, Dean Knight looks at the workings of the Privy Council, including the recent hearing of the Teina Pora appeal. New Zealand abolished appeals to the Privy Council at the end of 2003 when it introduced the Supreme Court, however any cases heard by the Court of Appeal before 2004 can still go to the Privy Council in London. The Teina Pora case may be one of the last New Zealand appeals to be heard there.
