Information for Students from New Zealand
Recent legislative changes make it easy for Queensland and New Zealand trained legal practioners to gain admission in the other jurisdiction.
In addition to its LLB program, Bond University offers a Professional Legal Training Program (PLT), comprising 15 weeks of classroom study and 15 weeks of structured work-based experience in a law office. Following completion of the PLT program, graduates may obtain practising certificates in Queensland or New South Wales. They can then be admitted in New Zealand under the Mutual Recognition arrangements.
The Faculty of Law has strong connections with New Zealand. One of the founding staff members at Bond was Professor George Hinde, formerly of the University of Auckland. For further information, please contact Professor Jim Corkery.
