Eisenhower Fellowship

Greg has been awarded an Eisenhower Fellowship for 2012, which will see him undertaking a range of legal experiences throughout the United States of America in 2012.



Greg has a high media profile and is often featured on television news items and documentaries in respect of criminal law issues.

As previously described, he is the Host and an Executive Producer of the weekly television programme ‘The Court Report’. Back episodes can be viewed on key words The Court Report.

In 2004 Greg hosted a television documentary called ‘What’s Your Verdict: Mark Lundy”. The programme aired on TV3 and was the most watched documentary in NZ that year.  It was followed up by a further four documentaries using the same format. Greg presented two of these additional programmes but could not present the other two because they involved cases in which he had been involved (including Peter Ellis). The programmes each focused on a high profile and controversial criminal case involving circumstantial evidence which is summarised and presented to a newly empanelled jury to debate. The emphasis was on jury dynamics rather than the cases themselves.
