Friends of ELINZ

The Friends of ELINZ programme was established in 2018 and was intended to foster greater collegiality between member- and non-member practitioners (and in particular, advocates and lawyers), provide mutual benefits to our members and to our friends, and to address access to justice issues.

Friends will generally be senior practitioners who are considered experts in their field and who can commit to providing friendly assistance to ELINZ on a regular / ongoing basis.

If you would like further info about the Friends of ELINZ programme, please contact us.

Kathryn Dalziel, Barrister

Kia ora!

My name is Kathryn Dalziel and I am a barrister at Walker Street Chambers in Christchurch specialising in employment and privacy law as well as civil litigation.

I teach in employment law and privacy and have published material in both those areas.  I regularly provide papers and seminar sessions at employment and privacy conferences.  I am also a legal ethicist and believe strongly in the benefits of professional organisation for the members of the profession as well as the public.

That is why I support ELINZ in setting and maintaining standards for the profession of employment advocates as well as helping members with practical advice.  I am available to provide support and advice, particularly in privacy law which often has a part to play in employment disputes.
