The New Zealand Institute of Legal Executives Inc (the Institute) is the professional association for legal executives in New Zealand.

The Institute was founded in 1975 by legal executives for the benefit of lawyers and has more than 1300 members. Our objectives are to promote and protect the status and interests of legal leaders and to promote unity, cooperation and mutual support among legal leaders. We also continue our training through our branches. Obtaining this qualification is also one of the eligibility criteria to become a registered legal executive as a member of the New Zealand Institute of Legal Executives Incorporated. Legal frameworks help lawyers prepare and file legal documents, research and prepare cases, provide legal advice, and assist with home sales. A legal director is a person who works as a trained assistant to a lawyer in a legal or quasi-legal environment. Note 2: If professional experience is indicated as a prerequisite after qualification, it applies to all qualifications listed for the occupation (unless otherwise stated).

Note 1: The qualifications listed (unless otherwise specified) are New Zealand qualifications acquired under the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF).

Note 4: The qualifications of candidates claiming points on the basis of this list in the category “Skilled Migrant” must be recognized in the category “Skilled Migrants”.

The times are rounded up to the nearest integer. If you wish to apply for residency in New Zealand, you may be eligible for the “Skilled Migrant” category or a work visa to reside if an accredited employer offers you a job. Note 5: If the New Zealand registration is indicated as a requirement and indicates that one or more qualifications are in this area of absolute shortage of skills”, a person only needs to possess the relevant New Zealand registration and have acquired all professional experience necessary to meet the requirements of the list. In these cases, qualifications are only listed for individuals applying for a work visa under WF4.1. Credits are awarded to courses based on the time and effort required to achieve their learning outcomes. In general, each credit corresponds to approximately 10 hours of study time. If you are between the ages of 18 and 30 and your country has an agreement with the New Zealand government, you may be able to apply for a working holiday visa.

The NZLS qualification is now discontinued and instead the New Zealand Diploma in Executive Legal Studies is currently offered by a few tertiary service providers across New Zealand. If you have enough points and meet the requirements, you may be able to apply for a residence visa in the “Skilled Migrants” category. This visa category allows you to live and work in New Zealand indefinitely and access most publicly funded services. The first step in applying for a visa is to submit an expression of interest.

Teaching weeks are the number of weeks we teach a course. This is different from the registration deadline, which is based on the start and end dates of the course. Our qualifications are issued on a quarterly or open basis. Employers with vacancies in New Zealand who have made serious but unsuccessful efforts to find a suitable New Zealand citizen or resident for the position may hire migrant workers. In this situation, the employer can apply to Immigration New Zealand for a basic permit to hire workers from abroad. You can also offer a job directly to a migrant and support their application for a work visa for essential skills. The employer must provide supporting information and demonstrate its efforts to hire New Zealanders first. Want to know more about the lists? See how they are reviewed and updated.
