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.

Supported Learning

IPLS provides premium quality pre-admission legal training in a fully supported environment.

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.

COVID-19 Pandemic – IPLS Response

The IPLS Profs course is now 100% online.

What happens to the onsites?
In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all onsites are now held online, until further notice.

What does this mean?
This means the entire course can be completed from anywhere where you have a reliable internet connection.

Your course dates and seminar planner will remain the same, but your onsites will be completed at a distance.

Rest assured, this will not cause any delays in course completion.
