LLB First Year
Entry into LAWS 121 is open to all applicants with a University Entrance qualification (subject to room capacity and the University GES admission system).
Students take three compulsory 100-level law courses and either five 15-point or four 20-point courses from subject areas other than law; i.e. 70 non-law points.
The three 100-level courses are:
- LAWS 121 Introduction to NZ Legal System
- LAWS 122 Introduction to Case Law
- LAWS 123 Introduction to Statute Law
You must pass LAWS 121 in the first trimester to take LAWS 122 and LAWS 123 in the second trimester.
You may repeat a 100-level law course, but only once, to try and improve your grade-point average for selection into second-year law.
If enrolments exceed the capacity of available lecture theatres, priority will be given to those students who are enrolling in each of these courses for the first time.
