Since te reo Māori was made an official language of NZ, there is a provision for the use of reo Māori in official proceedings.

But legal professionals say the system is still lagging behind and they hope to change that with the first ever kura reo specifically targeted at legal professionals, 

The kura reo took place at Hoani Waititi Marae and saw many Māori lawyers travel to Auckland to take part.

The idea for a kura reo was proposed at the Te Hunga Rōia Māori AGM. 

Yesterday was the last day of the kura reo, but organisers say it'll happen again in the hopes of te reo Māori helping our people engaging in the system.
