Law firm seeks applications for iwi governancve scholarship
Law firm Chapman Tripp is seeking applications for its iwi governance scholarship in law.
As well as a grant of $5000 towards their law studies at the University of Auckland, the winner also gets the chance to clerk at the firm’s Te Waka Ture Maori law practice.
Chief executive partner Nick Wells, who heads the group, says Chapman Tripp established the scholarship in 2012 to identify and help students with a particular interest in iwi management and governance, which is an area the firm has a strong presence in.
Last year’s winner, Finn Jacob-Sauer from Ngai Te Rangi, says he was keen to work with the firm after graduation because of his interest in Maori legal issues and in the governance and commercial issues faced by Maori following settlement.
Applications close on October 13.
