Using Te Reo Māori in the Courts
Te Reo Māori is an official language of New Zealand, and is increasingly being heard in the courts. More than half of New Zealanders commonly use te reo words or phrases. This webinar aims to help you feel confident in the use and understanding of te reo in the context of its use in the courts. As well as explaining the rules of its use in court, it will introduce you to some key phrases.
- An overview of te reo Māori in the courts;
- A quick history lesson;
- Trends for te reo Māori in the courts;
- Key phrases and giving your appearance in te reo.
The webinar is being provided at a minimum cost by the NZBA as part of its support for the use and normalisation of te reo Māori in our legal system.
