Michael Brown is a youth court judge in New Zealand. He announces here the first issue of this quarterly newsletter about a program of research into the laws and institutions of New Zealand in relation to the values of New Zealand society. This newsletter comes out of the School of Law in the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand. As Brown notes, the research will include, among other matters, studies of Maori jurisprudence, Maori and Western interaction in relation to law and legal structures, and a guide to restorative justice.
