            In 2021, The Trusts Act 2019 comes into force. This is the first major trust law reform in New Zealand in 70 years. Many of the key changes are aimed at making trust law more accessible to both lawyers and the public, strengthening the ability of beneficiaries to hold trustees to... account. Anyone involved in a family trust will need to find out about the changes introduced by this new Act. Many will choose to wind up the trust, and those that keep them will need to change how they manage them, so this book is an essential tool. A family trust offers you the benefits, use and control of your assets. Clear and straight-forward, and aimed at the layperson, Family Trusts includes up-to-date advice by New Zealand's leading financial writer, with real-life examples and answers to commonly asked questions throughout. This book has sold well over 120,000 copies since it was first published and is an essential book for anyone curious about family trusts or involved with a trust. 'In my experience, 75 per cent of family trusts in New Zealand are so badly arranged or managed that they could easily be attacked and overturned in court... managing a trust badly is a bit like insuring the contents of your house but then going on holiday and leaving the doors wide open,' says Martin Hawes. This is the one book anyone involved with a family trust should own.

            The arrival of the Internet was revolutionary, and one of the most tumultuous developments that flowed from it--the upending of the relatively settled world of copyright law--has forced us to rethink how rights to a work are allocated and how delivery formats affect an originator...'s claims to the work.

            The 1877 legal case Wi Parata v Bishop of Wellington centred on the ownership and use of the Whitireia Block, near Porirua. In refusing to inquire into ownership of the block, the Supreme Court judges dismissed the relevance of the Treaty of Waitangi: So far indeed as that instru...ment purported to cede the sovereignty - a matter with which we are not directly concerned - it must be regarded as a simple nullity. Over the past 25 years, this simple nullity view of the Treaty has been castigated and the infamous case seen as symbolic of the neglect of Maori rights. Now, David V Williams takes a fresh look at the case, affording new insights into both Maori-Pakeha relations in the nineteenth century and the legal position of the Treaty. Behind the apparent dismissal of the Treaty as a simple nullity lay deep arguments about the place of Maori and Pakeha in Aotearoa New Zealand, which are as relevant now as they were then.

            'Brutal, brave and utterly compelling, Bri Lee's extraordinary memoir shines a light on the humanity and complexity of our justice system and the limitless courage victims of crime must summon in a legal process stacked against them at every turn. In the age of #MeToo, Eggshell S...kull is a prescient personal account of a young woman's fierce and unflinching battle against her abuser. I can't remember a book I devoured with such intensity, nor one that moved me so profoundly.' Rebecca Starford, author of Bad Behaviour and co-founder of Kill Your Darlings 'An illuminating meditation on society's complicity in sexual assault, told through one woman's pursuit of justice in a system that has failed women and survivors for too long. Powerful as it is timely, Eggshell Skull is a courageous, heartbreaking and ultimately hopeful memoir from one of Australia's sharpest young writers.' Liam Pieper, author of The ToymakerEggshell Skull: A well-established legal doctrine that a defendant must accept 'take their victim as they come': If a thin skull caused the death of someone after a punch, that victim's weakness cannot mitigate the seriousness of the crime, nor the punishment. But what if it also works the other way? What if a defendant on trial for sexual crimes has to accept his 'victim' as she comes: a strong, determined accuser who knows the legal system, who will not back down until justice is done?Bri Lee began her first day of work at the Brisbane Magistrates Court as a bright-eyed judge's associate. Eighteen months later she was back as the complainant in her own case. This is the story of Bri's journey through the Australian legal system; first as the daughter of a policeman, then as a law student, and finally as a judge's associate in both metropolitan and regional Queensland--where justice can look very different, especially for women. Confronted by horrific criminal behaviour every day in court, Bri's eyes were opened to the inequity of the legal system and how compl

            Due Diligence - Dealing with Regulators (Paperback, 2nd edition)

            By Tooma, Michael

            Managers need a strategic approach to engaging with work, health and safety regulators. The second edition ofDue Diligence: Dealing with Regulators further develops this approach adopted for the first edition, but with the benefit of five years' experience in implementing those s...trategies in various businesses.

This book is a practical guide to the minefield of regulatory powers available to WHS regulators. It is intended for managers who find themselves having to deal with a regulatory investigation. KEY FEATURESWritten by Michael Tooma, a high profile legal expert in occupational health and safety lawPlain English guide to the key provisionsAuthoritative yet practicalIncludes the now familiar diagrams that have made this series so popular with readers.It is a step by step guide to various stages in a regulatory investigation, from a casual visit to a formal interview.Oxford University Press Australia & New Zealand is the non-exclusive distributor of this title.

            Due Diligence - Duty of Officers (Paperback, 2nd edition)

            By Tooma, Michael

            The first book in theDue Diligence Collection examines the role and duties imposed on officers pursuant to the new Model Work Health and Safety laws, the majority of which commenced on 1st January 2012.

It is separate from the duty imposed on their company. The duty is also proactive - it can be breached merely for failing to put in place a corporate governance regime, even though there may not have been a WHS incident at the officeras company. Written by OHS legal expert Michael Tooma, the second edition ofDue Diligence: Duty of Officers is an officeras answer to any of their duty questions.KEY FEATURESChapter 1 provides an overview of the duty.Chapter 2 explores the question of aoewho is an officera.Chapters 3a"8 deal with each element of the due diligence definition.Chapter 9 deals with the liabilities arising from breaches of the due diligence duty and explores practical recommendations for compliance by categories of officers such as directors, company secretaries, chief financial officers, human resources directors, general counsel and operations management.Oxford University Press Australia & New Zealand is the non-exclusive distributor of this title.
