Bachelor of Laws
Through the study of law, you will arm yourself with a skill set that meets the high demands of any legal career, including knowledge of the law and its implications, analytical and research skills, social appreciation, public responsibility and communication skills.
The Auckland Law School is ranked the best law school in New Zealand and one of the best law schools in the world.*
To become an LLB Part I (first-year) student you must first apply and be accepted into one other bachelor's degree program for your non-law courses. Places in LLB Part II (second year) are limited, and all applicants must go through a selection process.
You can combine your law degree with a wide range of conjoint programs (in Arts, Commerce, Engineering, Health Sciences, Music, Property or Science).
The City Campus is right in the heart of Auckland. You are within walking distance of all the main cultural, entertainment and commercial hubs.
