Law and Criminal Justice Information for High Schools

Law practices mind map, business concept strategy

Te Kura Ture | UC Law School invites high school students and teachers to participate in our Outreach programme to learn more about law and criminal justice in New Zealand. Our Outreach programme offers you a unique opportunity to expand your understanding of the law, support your studies and inspire your future career direction.

The activities and events we offer will generate interest in law while developing real-world academic and community-focused skills.

The Liaison Office offers tours of the University campus to prospective students. These give students an opportunity to explore our facilities and meet with College advisors to discuss your study options. School group tours can be arranged on request.
