Otago’s Faculty of Law has a long history of providing a world-class legal education.
The Faculty is New Zealand’s highest-ranked provider of tertiary education in the field of law, based on the Government’s Performance Based Research Fund (PBRF) assessment. Consequently, Otago attracts postgraduate supervisors, who have international reputations in their fields of research.
Otago’s postgraduate law programmes challenge you intellectually, while developing your independent research skills. As a postgraduate law student, you are part of the Faculty. Students are invited to seminars and events.
Postgraduate candidates come both from New Zealand and overseas: some are legal practitioners seeking to upskill and develop specialist expertise in their chosen profession, while others will go into academic careers.
