AMINZ Dunedin Network Meeting: with AMINZ President, Royden Hindle

An update from the President

AMINZ President Royden Hindle will be joining us to discuss a variety of topics regarding dispute resolution and the Institute. Royden will be talking about:

  • The question of making arbitration meaningful in a domestic setting, including how to use the Act to best advantage, appointments of arbitrators and the question of using arbitration as a substitute for District Court civil proceedings.
  • An update on where AMINZ lobbying is at in relation to Family Dispute Resolution issues.
  • A discussion of the AMINZ Associateship programme, and how those who do not have law degrees can achieve the associateship requirements.

He became a Fellow of AMINZ in 2001 and received the Sir Ronald Davison Award for award writing in that year. From 2002 to 2011 Royden was Chair of the Human Rights Review Tribunal. He is a member of both the Mediation and Arbitration Panels of the Institute and has been a Council member since 2011. He has also been the Institute's Director of Professional Studies since 2015.
