SECOND INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON THE LAW OF REMEDIES

Advancing the Common Law of Remedies: Praxis and Pedagogy throughout the Commonwealth

Friday November 16th, 2007
Hyatt Regency - Auckland, New Zealand

SYMPOSIUM THEMES, FOCUS AND SPEAKERS

New Zealand, Canadian and Australian common law has traditionally been influenced by developments in the United Kingdom, and to a lesser extent, legal developments of that other great common law bastion, the United States of America. That picture has changed significantly over the last two decades as the legal practices of these Commonwealth countries has matured. There is now significant inter-connectivity between these nations which has generated much legal discourse.

This Remedies Symposium is designed to explore the intersection of remedies and rights in domestic legal systems, but its frame of reference is distinctly trans-national. It asks whether it is now appropriate to speak of a new understanding of the common law. A common law that traces its historical roots back to Anglo legal traditions, but which builds upon the jurisprudence of all mature Commonwealth legal systems.

This Symposium is a must for lawyers, civil litigators, academics, judges, and policy makers who wish to delve more deeply into how remedial issues shape rights, and to those desiring to understand emerging remedial trends across Commonwealth jurisdictions.

Leading specialists from New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States of America, will write and contribute to one of five themes: Assessing lost opportunity and other interests in quantifying loss; Assessing ephemeral, subjective, and other types of non-pecuniary losses, Remedies which go beyond compensation; Holding others to a higher account; and Brave New World – The Globalization of Litigation. Full details of the programme are outline on the Symposium Website.

Over twenty presenters have agreed to write and lead interactive discussions on the above topics, including Justice Robert Sharpe (Ontario Court of Appeal), Justice Grant Hammond (NZ Court of Appeal), Michael Tilbury (NSW Law Commissioner), and Professors Capper (Queen’s Univ., Belfast), Hedley (University College, Cork), Rendleman (Washington & Lee Univ. USA), Weaver (Louis Brandeis Univ. USA), Copper-Stephenson (Saskatchewan Univ. Canada), Pratt (Queen’s Univ. Canada), Berryman (Windsor and Auckland Univ.), Fairley (Theall Group, Canada), Carroll (Univ. Western Australia), Spender (ANU), Watson (Macquarie Univ. Australia), Wright (Univ. Adelaide), Davis (Flinders Univ. Australia), Chetwin (Canterbury Univ. NZ), Manning (Auckland Univ.), McLauchlan (Victoria Univ. Wellington), McLay (Victoria Univ. Wellington), Harris (Auckland Univ.) and Palmer (Otago Univ.).

The Remedies Symposium is a joint venture of the Faculty of Law, University of Auckland, and the Faculty of Law, University of Windsor, Canada, and is made possible with financial sponsorship of the New Zealand Law Foundation, and Law Foundation of Ontario.
