Open to both LLB graduates and non-LLB graduates, the Postgraduate Certificate in Law from University of Auckland is effectively half of a Master of Laws (LLM) degree or Master of Legal Studies (MLS) degree.
If you have limited time or wish to study only a few select courses, this programme is ideal.
For some students, the PGCertLaw may also act as a pathway to the LLM or MLS degrees.
The PGCertLaw can enhance your career potential by honing your specialist knowledge and transferable skills. Our graduates combine their legal knowledge with advanced communication, research and analytical skills in a wide range of careers.
