The Auckland Law School is proud to present the Inaugural Sir Owen Woodhouse Memorial Lecture.

This lecture commemorates the life of one of our most distinguished judges and citizens. Sir Owen’s compassion, generosity of spirit and social conscience were reflected in his work as President of the Court of Appeal, President of the Law Commission, and Chairman of the Royal Commission that recommended a no fault accident compensation scheme. He made an immense contribution to New Zealand’s law and society.

The Sir Owen Woodhouse Memorial Lecture will be held annually, with the intention that it be given by a New Zealander and an international visitor in turn.

The lecture will be given in Auckland and in Wellington each year and lecturers will reflect Sir Owen’s interests in the law, social justice, and social reform.

The Woodhouse Lecture is being established by Sir Owen’s family and friends and it is appropriate that the inaugural lecture will be delivered by Sir Kenneth Keith. His topic is:

“Out of this Nettle, danger, we pluck this flower, safety: Promoting safety through law, national and international, and by other means”

We are grateful to Kensington Swan for hosting the inaugural lecture. This will start promptly at 5.30pm with drinks afterwards.
