Job Description

Crown Law provides legal advice and representation to the Government in matters that affect all New Zealanders, particularly in the areas of criminal, public and administrative law. At Crown Law you will work with leading public lawyers and find professional challenges that you won't find anywhere else. It is rewarding and challenging work that will see you making your mark. We offer a flexible work environment and unique career development opportunities within the broader Government legal network.

We are currently looking to appoint Crown Counsel within our Criminal group. This is a unique position to represent the Crown in relation to criminal matters, and involves: the conduct of criminal appeals in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court; managing mutual legal assistance and extradition requests to and from other countries; and exercising other miscellaneous Law Officer functions relating to criminal matters. The nature of this role requires significant experience practicing within the New Zealand criminal jurisdiction at a senior level, and an interest in international criminal law would be advantageous.

This position is based in Wellington.

To be considered for a position at Crown Law you must have a legal right to live and work in New Zealand and are required to complete a Ministry of Justice criminal records check.
