With the largest range of postgraduate courses in the country, at New Zealand’s top-ranked law school we’ll give you the tools to advance your career.
Our PGCertLaw is designed for professionals from non-legal backgrounds who require some knowledge of legal matters. Professionals such as accountants and auditors, architects and town planners, business development managers, compliance managers, engineers, IT professionals, police and public sector staff have greatly benefitted from this programme.
The programme can also be used by law graduates wanting to bridge the gap to masters-level law study. The PGCertLaw is effectively half of a Master of Laws (LLM) degree or Master of Legal Studies (MLS) degree.
Our programme provides flexible legal study for both full-time and part-time students. You can study while you work to keep up the momentum or go full-time to get to the next level even faster. Entry to the PGCertLaw is available throughout the year providing the flexibility you need to accelerate your career.
The PGCertLaw also provides skills in legal research methodology for those without advanced skills in this area.
With over 30 taught courses to choose from you can concentrate your study in particular areas of specialisation or study a broad range of legal subjects.
