This guide is intended for applicants who have not previously completed tertiary study. If you are a graduate applying for Part I click here.

Before you apply you will need:

  • Your up-to-date active personal email address
  • Information on your prior study, including appropriate qualification codes or identification numbers. For example:
  • National Student Number or NSN (for NCEA students)
  • Candidate Code and Centre ID Code (for CIE students in NZ)

Follow the standard step-by-step application guide:

You can follow the standard application steps here. Further information on steps 2 and 6 specific to applying for Law can be found below.

Step 1. Apply for admission

If you have no prior tertiary study you must apply for a conjoint LLB programme or LLB Part 1 and one other bachelors degree programme to satisfy the Law Part I requirement for five non-Law courses. If a second degree programme is not applied for, your LLB application cannot be processed.

Complete the Application to Study form

  1. Complete sections one and two with your personal information.
  2. In section three under ‘Select programme type’ choose ‘Bachelors’.
  3. Then select ‘Bachelor of Laws’ as your option under ‘Programme’.
  4. For ‘Major/Specialisation’ select Law Part I.
  5. Complete the rest of the required information.

Note: Law is only available to study at the University of Auckland City Campus.

You will need to complete a separate Application to Study form for your other bachelors degree.
If you’re applying for a conjoint programme you should make a conjoint Application to Study in addition to your individual applications for the LLB and your other degree (when making this application choose the relevant conjoint option under ‘Programme’ in section three of the Apply to Study form).

Step 2. Enrol in your courses

If your application is successful, we’ll email you an offer of place. For Semester One applications, this normally happens from mid-January.

You may receive a conditional offer but final approval will be dependent on fulfilment of the conditions of admission to BOTH the University and the programme.
