Workplace Ready

The Institute of Professional Legal Studies’ unique, competency-based programme equips new lawyers with the skills and knowledge required for practice in New Zealand irrespective of the area of law.

Want to work in Australia?

No problem! Your IPLS qualification works the same as any other qualification gained in NZ via the Trans Tasman mutual recognition regime.

“New Zealand lawyers can be admitted to practice in all states and territories of Australia under the Trans-Tasman mutual recognition regime. That regime offers a fast-track process, just as it does for Australian practitioners seeking admission here.” – NZLS.
