David Allan

Admitted to the bar in 1995

Areas of interest include criminal, mental health, intellectual disability, and parole.

David has a particular interest in improving the interview method of lawyers across the whole criminal justice system in order to identify, as far as is possible, what particular issues have contributed to the person's offending and how the risk of re-offending can be best managed. 

David presented a paper "Interviewing to find the Person" to the New Zealand Parole Board Conference in September 2013.

David co-presented with Dr Brigit Mirfin-Veitch, a NZLS CLE Ltd webinar "Criminal Law - working with intellectually disabled clients" in March 2015.
