  • Official access to encrypted communications in New Zealand: Not more
           powers but more principle'
    • Authors: Ben Keith
      Abstract: Common Law World Review, Ahead of Print.
      Although New Zealand is a member of the ‘Five Eyes’ intelligence community, it has taken a relatively cautious and in recent years often deliberative approach to counterterrorism powers, including in relation to access to encrypted communications. That approach can be seen to reflect New Zealand’s security, legal and political context and in particular its tendencies to independence, pragmatism and support for human rights. It is also apparent in the responses to date to the deaths of 51 people in the March 2019 attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand and, in particular, in the Christchurch Call, an initiative against terrorist and violent extremist content online. The Call is a non-binding standard adopted in cooperation with numerous other governments and large online service providers and includes commitments to transparency and human rights. As Five Eyes countries’ individual and collective positions concerning access to encrypted communications become increasingly forceful, the question is whether New Zealand will follow those positions or pursue more principled, collaborative and likely more workable measures, in line with its wider approach and the example of the Call.

  • Digital surveillance and access to encrypted communications in Australia
    • Authors: Nicola McGarrity, Keiran Hardy
      Abstract: Common Law World Review, Ahead of Print.
      Australia’s counterterrorism laws have significantly expanded the powers of its law enforcement and intelligence agencies with regard to digital surveillance. In this article, we explain and evaluate Australia’s counterterrorism laws with respect to intercepting telecommunications, other forms of digital surveillance and access to encrypted communications. We focus on the statutory powers held by federal law enforcement agencies and the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO), Australia’s domestic security intelligence agency. These powers confirm several important trends. They have further blurred the lines between intelligence and evidence and they have granted law enforcement and ASIO extraordinary powers to modify consumer technologies. They also create significant potential for conflict of laws across national boundaries. Significant strengthening of existing accountability mechanisms is needed to ensure public transparency and reduce opportunities for misuse.

  • Twisted into knots: Canada’s challenges in lawful access to
           encrypted communications
    • Authors: Leah West, Craig Forcese
      Abstract: Common Law World Review, Ahead of Print.
      This article addresses the Canadian law governing ‘lawful access’ to potentially encrypted data-in-motion; that is, communications done through electronic means. This article begins by outlining the core agencies responsible for counterterrorism investigations in Canada, and the recent public debate and government consultation on encryption. Next, we identify how older laws designed for a different era may be leveraged to force service and platform providers to assist law enforcement and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service by decrypting communications and data. We will also touch on the legal capacity of these organizations to develop their own ‘workarounds’, including the role of Canada’s signals intelligence agency, the Communications Security Establishment. Throughout, we highlight how Canada’s long-standing ‘intelligence to evidence’ problem affects and, arguably exacerbates, the encryption-prompted ‘going dark’ phenomenon and consequently impairs Canadian counterterrorism efforts. We predict legal reform resolving the ‘going dark’ issue will be impossible without modernization of Canada’s disclosure regime.

  • Enhancing patient privacy protection under Hong Kong’s Electronic
           Health Record Sharing System
    • Authors: Rebecca Yoke Chan Ong, Sandy Sabapathy
      First page: 4
      Abstract: Common Law World Review, Ahead of Print.
      While it is true that the expanded use of health information and electronic health records (eHRs) can help deliver better healthcare, there remains the need to reconcile citizens’ legitimate concerns for privacy protection and confidentiality in the use of their personal health data, and the potential for violation of their privacy. Under the Hong Kong’s Electronic Health Record Sharing System (eHRSS), the eHR of the individual patient can be accessed and shared between healthcare providers for healthcare-related purposes. Although the Electronic Health Record Sharing System Ordinance (Cap 625) (the ‘eHRSSO’) and the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (Cap 486) (the ‘PD(P)O’) provide protection for personal data and patients’ privacy, the eHRSS has come under greater scrutiny given the rise in data breaches experienced globally and in Hong Kong. The article’s objective is twofold. It first examines the eHRSS specifically with regard to some of the more pertinent provisions of the eHRSSO and the PD(P)O, to critically evaluate the extent to which these provisions ensure and protect patient privacy. Thence it offers suggestions and recommendations as to how protection for patient privacy can be enhanced and, indeed, altogether better ensured.

  • The relationship between contract law and property law
         This is an Open Access Article Open Access Article

    • Authors: Lutz-Christian Wolff
      First page: 31
      Abstract: Common Law World Review, Ahead of Print.
      It is commonly understood that contract law and property law are different areas of law which address different issues. This article departs from this conventional position in a rather radical way by arguing that the conclusion, amendment, and termination of contracts are in fact property law transactions and that the strict divide between contract law and property law is therefore not justifiable. It demonstrates theoretical and practical implications as contract law must be redefined and aligned with the general property law framework to avoid inconsistencies and thus the violation of the notion of formal rationality.

  • The common law theory and practice of the ombudsman/judiciary relationship
    • Authors: Richard Kirkham, Anita Stuhmcke
      First page: 56
      Abstract: Common Law World Review, Ahead of Print.
      In both Australia and the United Kingdom, the ombudsman sector plays a specific role in the oversight of the administration of government, but there exists no clear overarching theoretical framework within which the institution is aligned with common law constitutionalism. An ombudsman’s functionality is secured by gaining legal authority from parliament and effective power through executive acquiescence, but simultaneously to function effectively it must maintain a degree of separation from the executive and parliament. This situation creates a regulatory gap which the courts fill by acting in a supervisory relationship over the ombudsman sector. In turn, this raises the danger that the legitimacy gained through judicial oversight results in a loss of flexibility and uniqueness in the ombudsman institution. Through an empirical study of the case law on the sector, this article confirms that the courts have shaped and legitimised the role of the ombudsman institution under the common law constitution. Yet this study also suggests that there is a risk that over-reliance upon the judiciary to perform a retrospective, reactive and intermittent control function can lead to an inappropriate imposition of judicial values on the ombudsman sector as well as the courts performing an unsuited regulatory role.

  • The United Kingdom has spoken: The receding impact of European
           jurisprudence on the UK interpretation of the common VAT system
    • Authors: Yige Zu, Richard Krever
      First page: 75
      Abstract: Common Law World Review, Ahead of Print.
      Post-Brexit, UK law conforming to Directives of the European Union such as the value added tax (VAT) Directive will remain in effect and UK courts will be permitted to consider decisions of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) when interpreting that law. How UK common law courts, steeped in the tradition of the doctrine of precedent, will use CJEU judgments in the post-Brexit era has been the subject of much speculation. This article considers the question in the context of a case study, looking at the application by UK courts of CJEU decisions in an important area of VAT law, the treatment of customer loyalty plan benefits. The evidence suggests that, even prior to Brexit, UK courts had started to pursue a separate path, declining to follow CJEU precedents that yielded clearly inappropriate policy outcomes. If the results of the case study are replicated more widely in UK rulings, it can be expected that the influence of CJEU judgments may taper off where formalistic and literalist CJEU interpretations have led to outcomes inconsistent with the recognized policy intent of UK law.

  • Reform of civil procedure in Cyprus: Delivering justice in a more
           efficient and timely way
    • Authors: Nicholas Mouttotos
      First page: 99
      Abstract: Common Law World Review, Ahead of Print.
      Dissatisfaction with the administration of justice is as old as law proclaimed the distinguished American legal scholar Roscoe Pound in 1906. The system of administration of justice has been under considerable scrutiny in Cyprus following the excessive delays in resolving disputes that are highlighted in reports such as the European Union’s Justice Scoreboard, the World Bank’s Doing Business Reports as well as European Commission papers on Cyprus, urging authorities to modernize the system in order to be able to meet the demands following the financial crisis. For this reason, various experts have been assigned with the task of identifying the problems and coming up with proposals and solutions. The discussions, though, are not new as similar problems have been presented in common law jurisdictions, in particular, but they have been tackled decades ago, with the adoption of reforms that moved the adversarial system of justice closer to civilian stereotypes.

  • Through which glass darkly' Constitutional principle in legality and
           constitutionality review
    • Authors: Léonid Sirota
      First page: 131
      Abstract: Common Law World Review, Ahead of Print.
      In recent years, the Supreme Courts of Canada and the United Kingdom have decided very similar cases on the permissibility of high fees for access to adjudication. The outcomes of the cases were similar: the fees were struck down. In the Canadian case, they were held to infringe s 96 of the Constitution Act, 1867; in the United Kingdom, they were said to be a violation of the common law right of access to courts not authorized by statute. Yet a comparison of the reasoning of the two supreme courts is instructive. While the UK Supreme Court forthrightly and thoughtfully engaged with the impact of the fees at issue on the Rule of Law, the Canadian one failed to do so and instead relied on a strained interpretation of a constitutional provision of questionable relevance. This suggests that, perhaps surprisingly, legality review, being less bound up with constitutional text and causing courts less anxiety about its legitimacy, can allow the courts better to canvass the real issues cases implicating constitutional rights and principles present than constitutionality review.

  • State access to encrypted data in the United Kingdom: The
           ‘transparent’ approach
    • Authors: Bernard Keenan
      Abstract: Common Law World Review, Ahead of Print.
      This article foregrounds four key powers through which the UK intelligence and police agencies (broadly referred to hereafter as ‘law enforcement’) may access encrypted communications and data. It is structured as follows. First, a brief overview of the European Court of Human Rights’ jurisprudence on communications surveillance contextualises the overarching normative framework that must be translated into domestic law. The four powers are then discussed, both in legal and practical terms. The first two powers operate covertly, without the knowledge of the target. The latter two operate coercively, allowing police to demand individuals unlock encrypted data on penalty of prosecution. The article argues that the overall effect is to weaken encryption systems globally.
