Much has been written about the concept of public benefit in charity law, and the quantity of judicial and academic commentary on this concept is indicative of its challenging and often nebulous character. This article considers public benefit and charity law from a New Zealand perspective and it will illustrate that the New Zealand courts are not afraid to address controversial or challenging circumstances relating to these matters. Indeed, such cases reflect the ability of the courts to meet the contemporary challenges of determining public benefit.
