Job description

About the firm & opportunity

We are working with a specialist litigation practice, based in South Auckland, that is recruiting for an additional lawyer for its team. Working in a medium sized team, with a mix of seniors and juniors, the firm works on matters such as:
  • Treaty-related claims before the Maori Land Court and Waitangi Tribunal
  • Public law and policy matters
  • Marine and Coastal Area applications
  • Resource management issues, acting for iwis and Maori litigants.
  • Family law and Oranga Tamariki issues
  • Employment claims 
It's an interesting area of work involving social justice issues and an opportunity to hone your legal research, drafting and advocacy skills in this field. 

There is the ability to have flexibility in start / finish times and a WFH day if needed, so if the location is a consideration, the firm is fully supportive of some flexible working arrangements as it makes sense around team and client meetings.

About you:
  • Completed your LLB, with good grades (B average or higher);
  • Completed your Professional Legal Studies and either already admitted to the bar (or soon to be admitted); and
  • A demonstrable interest in public law, Maori legal and policy matters. Prior existing experience isn't needed but any work as a Law Clerk or in Litigation would be viewed favourably.
