Te Putairiki:

Maori Law Students' Association

University life can be very daunting at first, and the journey can seem very hard at times, but the upside is that there are multiple support services out there to make your journey a lot smoother.

Te Putairiki is one of those services. Formally established in 1993, Te Putairiki is the Maori Law Students Society on campus. Run entirely by students for students, our main objectives are to foster, promote and nurture the whakawhanaungatanga (togetherness) of our students, to provide support, guidance and pastoral care, and to facilite academic excellence.

We operate according to tikanga Maori, which creates a really welcoming whanau (family) atmosphere. We are lucky enough to have our own office in the Law School, which is a space that we can call our own, and a space where our students can study, recieve tutorials, meet with their peers, grab a cup of coffee, have lunch or simply hang out in between classes.

Other support offered to our students include extra tutorials, exam preparation workshops, essay writing workshops and social events which are run throughout the year, and the best thing of all is that membership is FREE.

Te Putairiki is a home away from home, and we would love to have you join our whanau.
