 ACHIEVEMENTS

 
KAREN 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.

Programme Manager
