An exciting opportunity for Years 12 and 13 students to experience Law, Psychology, Forensic Psychology and Crime Science at the University of Waikato in Hamilton.


Law (Room: Moot Court - Law Building)
Regardless of whether or not you would like to become a Lawyer, studying law is exciting, dynamic, and interesting. It helps students to develop a range of really important skills in terms of critical thinking, research and analysis, and writing. Our point of difference is that we ask what the law should look like to deliver a just society by examining law in its cultural, economic, and social context. Put simply, learning to think like a lawyer will enable students to become tomorrow’s change makers and pursue careers across all sectors of the New Zealand economy.

Psychology (Room: MSB.1.02)
Why two-year-olds can’t hop. Key foundational aspects of Psychology include the brain, thinking and cognition, behaviour, perception and sensory function, social understanding, and how development works. In this talk, we touch on all these things. By the end of it, you’ll know why two year olds can’t hop and a whole lot more.

Forensic Psychology and Crime Science (Room: MSB.1.03)
Understanding crime is more than binge-watching Netflix. In this talk, we introduce you to important concepts from Forensic Psychology and debunk the myths that are perpetuated in media representations of crime and criminals. Then, we highlight how Crime Science approaches are used in the real world to better understand crime so we can prevent it.
