Students in Law Clinic

UC's School of Law is one of New Zealand's leading law schools - consistently ranking in the top 150 law schools worldwide - and combines academic rigour with the development of essential legal skills. We have a strong reputation in traditional areas of law and offer innovative courses investigating the ways law intersects with Antarctica, the media, sport, and medicine.

Our unique Criminal Justice qualifications also have a strong vocational focus, and can lead to careers in law enforcement, corrections, offender rehabilitation, working with young offenders, criminal law, security and border control.
