Project Details

This project is the final and sixth phase of a national longitudinal study following a self-selected cohort of law students who started University in 2014. The intended output of the full longitudinal project is the development of a law student profile to inform the teaching and learning of undergraduate law programmes at New Zealand universities.

Aims: 

The main aim of this phase of the project is to collect and analyse the final data from the cohort of law students including their work experiences, their self-assessment of work-related skills and attributes, their well-being and their reflections on their time at law school. The data will be published separately and again as part of a longitudinal analysis of the law student experience at New Zealand law schools after the data has been integrated with the data from phases 1-5.

Methodology: 

Data will be collected from participants using an online and anonymous survey that will be developed based on findings from previous phases.
