“Privacy law at a crossroads: Can the courts provide some direction?”

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner and Privacy Foundation NZ, in association with Victoria University of Wellington Faculty of Law, are pleased to present the Sir Bruce Slane Memorial Lecture with the Court of Appeal judge, the Hon Justice Helen Winkelmann.

Justice Winkelmann will discuss informational privacy, including an overview of the state of data protection in New Zealand and internationally. She intends to focus on the Privacy Bill, Europe’s GDPR and updated OECD rules, as well as offer her commentary on the absence of protection under the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act.

The Sir Bruce Slane Memorial Lectures – in Auckland and Wellington – will be chaired by Dame Silvia Cartwright PCNZM DBE QSO.

The two lectures by Justice Winkelmann mark 25 years of New Zealand’s Privacy Act and are in honour of the nation’s first Privacy Commissioner, Sir Bruce Slane, who passed away in 2017.

The Sir Bruce Slane Memorial Lectures are brought to you in partnership with the Privacy Foundation NZ:
