Posted on 3 March 2020

The Open Polytechnic is celebrating the achievements of its students in the 2011 New Zealand Law Society’s Legal Executive Diploma examinations with students winning five out of seven prizes for top marks in their individual exams.

Each year students from seven different tertiary providers around the country sit one or more of the six examinations that make up the New Zealand Law Society Legal Executive Diploma.

Melanie De Munnik, an Open Polytechnic student living in Mount Maunganui, says she was pleasantly surprised with her mark in the Introduction to Law Office Practice exam.

“I was very thrilled, very proud of all the hard work I put in. I actually had to read the results several times just to be sure,” says Melanie.

Open Polytechnic Legal Executive Programme Leader, Cedric Hunt says he was very pleased with the results of last year’s exams.

“It is very rewarding and delightful to see that so many students did so well in the 2011 exams. Our admiration and congratulations go out to every one of them,” says Cedric.

All five winning Open Polytechnic students will each receive a $150 prize from the New Zealand Law Society for their efforts.
