              This edited collection asks how key New Zealand judgments might read if they were written by a feminist judge. Feminist judging is an emerging critical legal approach that works within the confines of common law legal method to challenge the myth of judicial neutrality and illust...rate how the personal experiences and perspectives of judges may influence the reasoning and outcome of their decisions. Uniquely, this book includes a set of cases employing an approach based on mana wahine, the use of Maori values that recognise the complex realities of Maori women's lives. Through these feminist and mana wahine judgments, it opens possibilities of more inclusive judicial decision making for the future. 'This project stops us in our tracks and asks us: how could things have been different? At key moments in our legal history, what difference would it have made if feminist judges had been at the tiller? By doing so, it raises a host of important questions. What does it take to be a feminist judge? Would we want our judges to be feminists and if so why? Is there a uniquely female perspective to judging?' Professor Claudia Geiringer, Faculty of Law, Victoria University of Wellington 'With this book, some of our leading jurists expose the biases and power structures that underpin legal rules and the interpretation of them. Some also give voice to mana wahine perspectives on and about the law that have become invisible over time, perpetuating the impacts of colonialism and patriarchy combined on Maori women. I hope this book will be a catalyst for our nation to better understand and then seek to ameliorate these impacts.' Dr Claire Charters, Associate Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Auckland 'The work is highly illuminating and is critical to the development of our legal system ... It is crucial, not only for legal education, so that students of the law open their minds to the different ways legal problems can be conceptualised and decided. It is also crucial if we are

              Principles of Evidence in Criminal Cases (Paperback)

              Principles of Evidence in Criminal Cases provides a starting point for anyone studying the law of evidence as it applies in criminal proceedings. The primary aim of the book is to explain the reasons why the law controls the admissibility of evidence and the way in which it is co...ntrolled. The book's structure is intended to enable readers to quickly grasp the essential principles of the law of criminal evidence. The chapters begin with an explanation of the rationale behind particular rules of criminal evidence, followed by a description of the New Zealand approach to the regulation of such evidence. Principles of Evidence in Criminal Cases also encourages a critical contemporary analysis of the law of criminal evidence. Associate Professor Elisabeth McDonald has a wealth of experience as a teacher of the law of criminal evidence. The book draws on that experience and has been written for a broad audience including law students, who will find it an invaluable aid for exam study, as well as lawyers, Judges, JPS, Community Magistrates, the Police, members of Government Agencies with prosecution and law enforcement powers, and members of the public with an interest in criminal law. The text is designed to complement the Thomson Reuters publications The Evidence Act 2006: Act and Analysis, 2nd edition and the commentary in Adams on Criminal Law.
