Studying at Victoria

The Victoria Law School is located in the historic Government Buildings, in the heart of Wellington’s legal and political district. Next door to the Courts, Executive Government and Parliament, this is an ideal environment for the study of law. The exceptional caliber of the teaching staff combines with this unique situation to make Victoria University one of the leading providers of legal education in New Zealand.

The programme of study at Vic is carefully structured to teach the essence of the legal perspective - how to think legally - as well as to provide a good grounding in the important core subject areas of law. The Victoria Law School has long held a reputation for high standards in teaching and research, and the stimulating environment it provides attracts highly qualified students, researchers and staff.

Research centres at the law school include the New Zealand Centre of International Economic Law & the New Zealand Centre for Public Law.
