There is a Court in New Zealand that lawyers are not allowed into…..
And it is the same Court that decides the vast majority of all legal disputes in New Zealand.
The name of the Court is the Disputes Tribunal. Formerly known as the Small Claims Court, the Tribunal was set up as an efficient and cost effective way to decide disputes between individuals, companies and trusts up to the value of $15,000. I was privileged to be appointed as a Referee to the Disputes Tribunal for two years.
