Te Piringa - Faculty of Law Student Profiles

 

Season-Mary Downs

Law
I always knew I wanted to make a difference to the community so studying towards a law degree was the best way I could see to help. It’s a privilege to be able to use my law degree and the knowledge I’ve gained to help the community.


Shelley Greer

Law
Studying law opened my mind to a completely different language, way of thinking, expressing myself and problem solving. Even if a student did not eventually end up practising law, a law degree would equip them with skills that they can use in many other industries and careers.


Te Maiora Rūrehe

Law, Māori Language/Te Reo Māori
Lawyers are catalysts for change as they can directly influence justice and how it’s administered. Using these skills, I want to take them back to my people and show them how to participate effectively within the system.


Taylor Hamlin

Economics, Law
The support from my lecturers has been great – I feel like Waikato is very collaborative and my tutors are very understanding of my extra-curricular activities and basketball in relation to my studies.


Tayla Afoa

Law, Philosophy, Political Science
When I came down for an orientation, the campus caught my eye instantly – the lakes are beautiful, everything is close together, the Uni itself is away from the bustling city, and the campus has its own student vibe.


Claudia King

Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management, Law
The University of Waikato Law school alumna is co-founder, CEO and the driving force behind legal tech company Automio.


Cain Kerehoma

Law
There is a strong whānau ethos within the Law School, with the university, staff and students working collectively to produce some of the finest and most talented leaders of tomorrow.


Kale Isaac

Economics, Law
The high calibre of academic programmes and lecturers was one of the primary reasons I chose to study here. Waikato is also very strong at promoting teamwork in a supportive environment.


Willow-Jean Prime

Development Studies, Law, Maori, Māori and Pacific Development, Māori Language/Te Reo Māori, Māori and Indigenous Studies
I'm inspired by the dedicated and committed people who've gone before me. We have to ensure that future generations of Māori are provided for spiritually, culturally, environmentally and economically. I'm not afraid of a challenge.


Leilani Tuala-Warren

Law
My law degree has given me the confidence, skills and knowledge to practice law and now to assist in the formulation and development of legal policy.
