Krishnan Eesvan - BCom/LLB(Hons)

“The teaching I received at Auckland was simply world class. I learned something of what the law is, and a whole lot about how to think like a lawyer.”

“As I’ve found out after clerking for the Chief Justice, wrestling with real life legal puzzles makes you grateful for what you learned at law school. The teaching I received at Auckland was simply world class. I learned something of what the law is, and a whole lot about how to think like a lawyer. There were also many opportunities outside of the classroom to grow as a future lawyer. I volunteered on the Zaoui case and co-founded The Equal Justice Project, Auckland’s first student-run pro bono programme.”
