Practice of Law

The world that we are living in today will not be the world our children live in.

Technology, cyber security and AI (artificial intelligence) are transforming every aspect of our lives, and the law is changing, adapting and transforming to meet this need.

TeLENZ offers those charged with teaching the next generation of lawyers tools, resources, content solutions and knowledge-sharing opportunities to provide cutting edge learning opportunities.

More than just an information repository, the TeLENZ platform will transform the practice of law.

TeLENZ is a two-year research project, proudly funded by the Law Foundation, drawing on the skills and expertise of leading law academics throughout New Zealand universities to develop an online community to share academic resources, knowledge and content to help design meaningful courses for future law graduates.
