O’REILLY – SUCCESS IN 2012 NATIONAL EXAMS
Whitireia New Zealand warmly
congratulates Karen O’Reilly on her outstanding successes in the 2012 New
Zealand Law Society Legal Executive Diploma examinations.
Karen achieved top marks
for New Zealand in two of the six papers, viz.
Introduction to the Legal System and Business
Law and Practice. She had near
perfect scores in both of these papers.
The New Zealand Law
Society Legal Executive Diploma is a national programme taught at six different
teaching institutes including the Open Polytechnic which has a majority of the
students. Whitireia students,
although few in number compared to the total number of examination candidates
nationally, have achieved top marks in one of the six papers in the past but
Karen is the first Whitireia student to achieve top marks nationally in two
papers. This is a tribute not just to
her natural ability but also to her very strong work ethic.
We are delighted to
extend our warmest congratulations to Karen and to express the hope that she
will have a very successful future.
