Pouāwhina Māori responsibilities

If you are a prospective student, the Pouāwhina Māori is able to offer advice about the entry requirements for LLB Part I and the relevant standards expected to progress through to LLB Part II, which is a limited entry programme.

The Pouāwhina Māori is responsible for academic and pastoral care of tauira, and the organisation and implementation of tutorials and wānanga for all core papers throughout the tertiary year. The focus of the tutorials and wānanga is to assist and encourage Māori students to develop and consolidate their legal academic writing and enhance academic achievement. Students are encouraged to aim for the Honours program in their Part II year of study.
