Te Kuhunga consists of the following components:
School visits: MC lawyers visit schools to talk about day-to-day life as a lawyer and what it’s like to study law.
Office visits: Students visit MC to discuss their aspirations and plans with partners and lawyers, and participate in discussions about a topical legal issue.
University open days: Held at AUT and University of Auckland Law Schools, students attend lectures and tutorials and are invited to participate in a moot (a court-style debate).
Scholarships: With the support of the Hugo Charitable Trust, scholarship recipients are awarded $8000. Successful recipients will be enrolled in Part One law courses and would otherwise experience significant financial hardship studying at University.
University mentoring: Scholarship students are matched with an MC mentor in their first year of study, receiving one-on-one support and group study sessions. Work experience days are also available to students, when they can shadow their mentor at work and in court.
