Te Kauhanganui Tātai Ture

Nau mai, haere mai ki Te Kauhanganui Tātai Ture. Welcome to the Faculty of Law.

Māori students studying law are placed in a unique position as tangata whenua, learning the place, purpose and operation of the New Zealand legal system, how the Treaty of Waitangi fits into that and creating opportunities to work with and for indigenous communities. There is a range of support options available to Māori students who are studying law, to support and guide them to develop as compassionate, confident, skilled Māori professionals.
