We are experts on Māori legal issues and have extensive experience in teaching and running workshops on these areas of law.
Our staff have previously run seminars and workshops for judges, academics, lawyers, government departments, iwi, and Māori trusts. We have also taught law papers at three of the top law schools in Aotearoa.
We have particular experience in running workshops on the following subject areas: Te Tiriti o Waitangi/the Treaty of Waitangi; governance; tikanga and the law; and recent legislative amendments affecting Māori (such as the Resource Management Act 2003 and the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989).
We are comfortable presenting to all audiences (and knowledge levels) and can cater workshops to suit the desired learning outcomes of particular organisations.
