About this course

Master of Laws in Maori/Pacific and Indigenous Peoples' Law (LLM Maori/Pacific and Indigenous Peoples') provides an opportunity to study in-depth the historical and developing trends within the area of indigenous peoples' rights.

You'll examine how the United Nations and other international organisations influence the process of Indigenous rights development. You will learn what role the State plays in recognising environmental and economic rights of indigenous peoples.

What will post-settlement New Zealand legal landscape look like? You could be the driving force behind developing a truly inclusive New Zealand Jurisprudence that would incorporate the best of the traditional Maori practices and Common Law.

The knowledge and skills developed through our specialist programme are relevant in roles in:

  • Academic teaching and research;
  • Treaty settlement
  • Maori governance
  • Crown Law
  • Local and central government
  • Education
  • Maori economy

The Master of Laws in Maori/Pacific and Indigenous Peoples' Law programme is offered with the same study options as those of Master of Laws (LLM). Please see the Master of Laws page for more information.
