Drop-in Sessions: 12 February – 1 March 2024:
From 12 February until 1 March, Monday to Friday from 10.00am to 12.00pm and 2.00pm to 4.00pm the Law Faculty Advising Team will be offering open-door, no appointment necessary, first-come, first served, advising sessions for LLB and BCJ students.
Please note this exclusion: There are no drop-in sessions on Friday 16 February owing to Welcome Day activities.
For the drop-in sessions, please come to Meremere Level 3 and take a seat in the waiting area outside office 333.
Demand for advice at this time of year is heavy, so this means your meetings with advisors are likely to be brief and you may have to wait for a little bit to be seen. If you come close to the end of our drop-in sessions, e.g. 11.45am or 3.45pm, depending on the number of people waiting in line already, we may not be able to see you in that session and might ask you to return another day. Please be respectful and kind while we are trying our best to see as many of you as we can.
During the drop-in period, we may be unable to answer phones, respond to emails or offer any set appointment times.
Faculty of Law Student Advisors are located on Level 3, Meremere Building and individual appointments may be made by following the Book an Appointment link below or by emailing one of the Advisors for an appointment.
The Student Advisors in the Faculty of Law can assist you in a variety of ways from planning your degree to helping with special applications regarding your course of study in Law or Criminal Justice.
