Who is the governing body of the New Zealand Law Society
The request was refused by Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.
From: Rochelle Butt
Dear Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet,
I have made OIA request to the New Zealand Law Society (NZLS), but note that they are not subject to the OIA. Given, the secretive nature of that Society and that I do not know who the (NZLS) act under, which is the information I require, I am asking executive council.
Please could you provide me with information as to the following:
1. Who is the NZSL accountable to ie who is the governing body?; and
2. What law enforcement authority does the NZLS have to hold lawyers accountable to New Zealand Law and to the Rules for Lawyers according to the Lawyers & Coveyancers Act?.
