About the project
Te Kura Reo o Te Hunga Rōia Māori is a three-day intensive full immersion wānanga designed to support the legal profession to uplift the knowledge and capability of its te reo Māori speakers. Te Kura Reo also provides an opportunity to strengthen whanaungatanga within the legal fraternity.
Te Kura Reo brings together Māori speaking legal professionals from the bench and bar, alongside legal academics and lawyers in other fields to provide training and upskilling in te reo Māori. Te reo Māori is the central focus of the kaupapa, and the lessons and workshops are relevant to te reo Māori in the legal profession. In 2021, Te Kura Reo has expanded to include ‘Te Kuhunga,’ a pathway for people who are just beginning their te reo Māori journey.
Te Kura Reo 2021 has been rescheduled to take place 23-25 November 2022 at Toi Ohomai campus in Rotorua.
