Something to go to in Auckland

With the government about to pass an Immigration Bill which can only be described as a disaster for human rights, the Legal Research Foundation has organised a conferance on "Human rights at the frontier":

"Human rights at the frontier", organised by the Legal Research Foundation, will explore the new legal framework for immigration in the context of New Zealand's international obligations, particularly in human rights.

It will bring together international and New Zealand experts in immigration, refugee and human rights law. They include leading academics in the field along with Roger Haines QC, a specialist in immigration law who is Deputy Chair of the Refugee Status Appeal Authority.

When: Friday, September 12, 2008
Where: University of Auckland Law School
How much: No idea yet.

I'd suggest keeping an eye on the UoA law school's events page, but its pretty obviously busted.
