Research options

There are several ways to conduct research for your postgraduate degree at the Auckland Law School.

Student research is normally conducted under a supervised project and is credited to a formal qualification. The PhD is a research only based qualification, while the LLM and MLS can have a large research component in addition to taught courses. The PGCertLaw can only be completed via taught courses.
