Māori lawyer teaching te Reo in Invercargill

From Morning Report, 8:27 am on 14 November 2017

A Māori law graduate from Hamilton has started teaching te Reo Māori lessons at a law firm in Invercargill in a push to see the language more commonly used by lawyers. Georgia Woodward says te Reo has an important place in the law profession because a large proportion of people who pass through the justice system are Māori. As Te Manu Korihi reporter Te Aniwa Hurihanganui explains, other practising lawyers agree.
