              Celebrating the first and only New Zealander to ever be appointed to the International Court of Justice, this collection of essays marks the key events in the life of Sir Kenneth Keith, one of New Zealand's most eminent jurists. In these essays, leading judges, academics, and pra...ctitioners reflect on Sir Kenneth Keith's contribution to the law and advance dialogue on a range of areas of legal policy. This compendium reflects Sir Kenneth's preoccupation with the connections that underlie the legal universe-between the local and the international, the past and the present, the practical and the theoretical, and the aspects of law and those of policy, history, and literature. This compilation includes contributions from the Chief Justice of New Zealand Dame Sian Elias, former Prime Minister and president of the Law Commission Sir Geoffrey Palmer, and chairperson of the Cambridge faculty of law and current New Zealand Supreme Court judge Justice Peter Blanchard.

              This book examines New Zealand's constitution, through the lens of constitutional realism. It looks at the practices, habits, conventions and norms of constitutional life. It focuses on the structures, processes and culture that govern the exercise of public power - a perspective... that is necessary to explore and account for a lived, rather than textual, constitution. New Zealand's constitution is unique. One of three remaining unwritten democratic constitutions in the world, it is characterised by a charming set of anachronistic contrasts. Unwritten , but much found in various written sources. Built on a network of Westminster constitutional conventions but generously tailored to local conditions. Proudly independent, yet perhaps a purer Westminster model than its British parent. Flexible and vulnerable, while oddly enduring. It looks to the centralised authority that comes with a strong executive, strict parliamentary sovereignty, and a unitary state. However, its populace insists on egalitarian values and representative democracy, with elections fiercely conducted nowadays under a system of proportional representation. The interests of indigenous Maori are protected largely through democratic majority rule. A reputation for upholding the rule of law, yet few institutional safeguards to ensure compliance.
