College of Law NZ appoints ex-NZLS president as new board chair

College of Law New Zealand has appointed ex-New Zealand Law Society president Chris Moore as its new board chair.

Moore steps into the role with immediate effect. He succeeds Ian Haynes ONZM, who held the position for nearly two decades before his recent passing.

“We acknowledge and appreciate the lengthy contribution that Ian Haynes made to the college over almost two decades of service. We are appreciative that Chris has agreed to take on the role of board chair in these unique circumstances. Chris' experience and skills will be invaluable during this period of transition as he drives the College of Law New Zealand into the future,” CEO Marcus Martin said.

Moore joined the College of Law New Zealand board just last year.

“I am honoured to take on the role of board chair for the College of Law New Zealand and want to recognise the enormous dedication and service of my predecessor Ian Haynes. I hope to continue Ian’s legacy,” he said.
