Legal Experts Meet Immigration Minister
Officials of the Wellington branch of the New Zealand Law Society (NZLS) regularly meet Immigration Minister Michael Woodhouse. This provides a platform for the exchange of information and ideas on sound immigration policies.
Such meetings also enable the government to apprise the legal profession of the thinking and expectation from the immigration sector. The Law Society officials also inform the government of the ground realities and the ways and means of creating a more congenial environment for new migrants, migrants on work visas and international students.
