Developed in consultation with the New Zealand Law Society.
Here at NZMA we offer the only classroom based Legal Executive Studies programme in New Zealand and learning is totally flexible. You can study this course for 36 weeks full time or you can choose to study part time in the afternoons and evenings.
Set yourself up in a well-paying and challenging legal career in 2019. This diploma is right for you if you are wanting a career change into a challenging and well paid sector, have just graduated high school and are looking at first steps into the legal profession, or are currently working in a role that requires in depth knowledge of the New Zealand legal environment. If you have previously succesfully completed relevant Legal Executive papers at other registered providers (including through distance learning) we will award you cross credit for those papers.
Legal Executive Studies is a stepping stone to essential support roles in law firms, government departments and other organisations. You’ll graduate with the expertise to support lawyers in meeting the needs of their clients. This qualification is also a prerequisite to becoming a registered Legal Executive.
You’ll look at different aspects of the New Zealand legal system and will gain a strong understanding of the New Zealand legal environment.
