Helping you relocate
We offer overseas lawyers a generous reimbursement package to cover some of the cost of their relocation. This includes things like the cost of travel, relocation of your household belongings, and accommodation upon your arrival in New Zealand.
Helping you re-qualify
If you're an overseas practitioner and you're seeking admission to the High Court of New Zealand, you will have to apply to the New Zealand Council of Legal Education for assessment of your overseas qualification. Following this assessment it's likely that you'll need to undertake further study (other than Australian qualified lawyers who are exempt) and we will support you through this process.
