Law Commission of New Zealand Consultation on Alternative Criminal Trial Processes

The Law Commission of New Zealand has launched a consultation process on how criminal trials are conducted.

In particular, the Commission wants to examine whether there may be better ways to serve the interests of justice – particularly in cases involving sexual offending.

It raises a number of possible options for reform of pre-trial and trial processes that seem inspired by its pre-consultation research into the practices of inquisitorial legal systems such as those in Austria, Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark.
