a fairer justice system for Māori
Two men have secured scholarships to pursue a post-graduate degree in law at a New Zealand university or at an overseas institution.
It comes following a demand for an increase in Māori to fill positions of influence to improve outcomes and create mana-enhancing strategies for the justice system.
The Borrin Foundation philanthropic fund was set up by a former High Court Justice to support legal research, education and scholarship to serve a fairer Aotearoa.
The Foundation's current strategic areas of focus are the criminal justice system, family law and access to civil justice.
