Privacy Law in New Zealand offers a broad-ranging examination of privacy principles from theoretical and practical perspectives.

Drawing on the foundations of the first two editions, the third edition updates the text throughout and incorporates the new Privacy Act 2020. The table of contents has been expanded and revised to include new chapters on the courts, education, data flow, business, social media and remedies.

Privacy Law in New Zealand remains the only treatise-style analysis of privacy law and is a valuable resource for academics, privacy law specialists, general practice lawyers, along with those practising in the areas of employment, health, human rights, internet and new media, and education.
