Faculty of Law
The University of Waikato
N Block, Gate 7, Hillcrest Road, Hamilton

This is a department of The University of Waikato

Law at the University of Waikato is a rich, challenging subject with a strong emphasis on the development of research skills.

Te Piringa – Faculty of Law was built upon three core principles; professionalism, biculturalism and the study of law in context. These principles guide teaching and research, resulting in Te Piringa being ranked in the top 200 law schools in the world. Classes in Te Piringa – Faculty of Law are small and are typically offered in seminar-style discussions. This approach to teaching at an advanced level creates opportunities for students to discuss issues and share perspectives. It helps students to improve their communication skills and creates opportunities to network with others and renew motivation and confidence. Students also receive one-on-one time with the lecturing or supervising academic staff. 

Whether their interest lies in Cyber Law, Laws of War and Conflicts, Transnational Criminal Law, Indigenous Issues or Environmental Law, students will benefit from learning from nationally and internationally recognised academic staff.

Waikato offers the largest selection of papers in cyber law in New Zealand, enabling students to complete a masters programme focusing on this area. The challenging and enriching learning experience at graduate level is recognised and appreciated by students. Te Piringa – Faculty of Law runs the biggest doctoral law programme of any law school in New Zealand.
