AUT's law degree opens the door to a wide range of rewarding careers.
AUT law graduates have established successful careers in a range of law firms, immigration consultancies and commercial establishments.
The university interactive lectures and regular case-study workshops develop your ability to interpret, critically analyze, reason and deliver practical solutions to legal problems.
You become an articulate communicator, and confident in your understanding of legal principles and their relevance to business and community.
You also develop your critical thinking and problem-solving skills, your ability to act ethically, and your sense of community and professional responsibility.
You study three compulsory courses: Legal System, Legal Reasoning and Writing, and Personal Property. This makes up half of your first-year study (60 points).
The other 60 points must be taken from another AUT degree, which gives you the opportunity to broaden your study and enables you to enroll in one of the double degrees.
If you complete your Part I courses with at least a B (69.50-74.49%) grade average in the compulsory law courses, you will be offered a place in Part II. Other students may also be eligible for Part II.
Part II, III and IV
In your second year, you study six further compulsory law courses:
Law of Contract, Law of Torts, Public Law, Real Property and Trusts. In your third year you study Company Law, Criminal Law, Advanced Private Law, Public International Law and choose the rest of your courses from law electives.
In your final year you study Legal Ethics, as well as a selection of law electives.
