Māori Leaders in Law – Secondary Schools Workshop

Thursday 12 May 2016 10:03am


Participants from the 2015 Workshop

Last year, the Faculty of Law launched the Te Īhaka Project: Building Māori Leaders in Law. One of the aims of the programme is to provide greater inspiration for our Māori law students to achieve success in their law studies, from LAWS101 to LLB graduation (and beyond to post-graduate studies). During the year, students are involved in a number of activities, including running a workshop for Māori Secondary School students. This year, it will take place on Friday 27 May.

The Secondary Schools Workshop day is aimed at Māori students, currently in Year 12 or Year 13 at school. It will give them the opportunity to participate in a series of workshops, allowing them to gain firsthand experience with the process of working through a variety of legal problems or cases.

Not only will these problems give the school students a broad insight into how the law interacts with tea ao Māori, but it will also showcase how it relates with other areas of the world. These workshops will be lead by our current Māori law students, who will guide the students through the issues and how to address them. It is also a great opportunity to hear about the experiences and life of a Māori law student.
