NZLSA publishes its very own magazine called LEX.

This was established in 1999 and has been produced twice a year. LEX gives law students across the country the opportunity to not only read about what is going on in terms of recruitment, legal competitions and achievements of New Zealand law students but also the opportunity to contribute to the magazine and write articles of their own. It is widely distributed across all six of the New Zealand law faculties and gives law students the opportunity to see what is going on amongst fellow law students around the country. LEX boasts writers from not only New Zealand but also overseas and features articles on a wide range of legally related subjects. NZLSA often approaches former law students now engaged in legal practice or in other interesting legally related fields of work to write articles for LEX often regarding what they have done since they have left law school, leaving the reader with interesting ideas and opportunities perhaps not previously contemplated. This year LEX will have an electronic PDF version that can be downloaded from the website with a link to do so on facebook, so make sure you like the NZLSA facebook page and keep an eye out this year for LEX Magazine!


If you would like to write an article for LEX about your experience as a law student or an issue that you feel passionate about, please email the LEX editor, Edward Coughlan, at!
