New Zealand law students are invited to advance their legal careers with a Free Membership for the duration of their study.
A Membership with us supports those getting started in law and can be beneficial in furthering your professional development. Our Student Membership includes a LawNews subscription, access to networking events, and future employment opportunities.
Our mentorship events provide the opportunity for Student Members to make lasting connections that could lead to work opportunities in future. On top of this, it provides a rare opportunity to ask burning questions and gain insight into the practicing profession.
Student members are notified of new employment opportunities in their area providing many with a head start on securing employment. All work opportunities are paid and provide students with hands-on experience. The work opportunities programme is available to Members only.
Attend Student Events
We work closely with partners to create and host events for our Student Members. These events are indispensable professional development opportunities for those getting started in law and those looking to start building out their networks.
Together with the NextGen Lawyers Committee, we have created a helpful guide on the admissions process for New Zealand.
If you are ready to begin your admissions process or would like a sneak peek at what to expect, this is the document for you.
This guide is accurate as of September 2023 and will be regularly reviewed.
