WHAT IS THE SCOPE FOR LEGAL STUDIES
Lawyers trained in New Zealand are qualified to practise as both barristers and solicitors. Barristers work mainly in the courts and tribunals. Solicitors may be involved in general advisory work, property transactions, estates, arranging finance and commercial work. They may also be involved in drafting wills, administering estates, advising on tax, forming companies, making contracts and raising or securing loans. Students can seek to do a bachelors of law in New Zealand or if already qualified overseas in law they can opt for Honours or postgraduate study in law. This will create a greater opportunity in the employment market.
