Located in the heart of Auckland's bustling CBD, AUT Law School offers a distinctive, professionally-focused legal education designed to maximise the employment opportunities available to our students once they graduate. The school is staffed by a team of motivated and supportive lecturers and produces graduates who are quickly becoming highly sought after by a range of law firms and other employers.

Operating since 2009, the four year Bachelor of Laws (LLB) and the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) have been developed in close consultation with the legal profession and other key external stakeholders.
