A position has recently become available in the NZ Law Style Guide Enforcement Division. The Division is seeking a self-motivated lawyer to join its team as an Enforcement Officer. The Division is responsible for ensuring uniform use of the Style Guide throughout the New Zealand legal community. Those individuals and organisations who refuse to follow the Style Guide sometimes need “persuading” that compliance is in their best interests and reminding that it would be a pity if anything were to happen to their families.
Work with the Enforcement Division will see frequent contact with various uppity specialist Tribunal and Authority members who don’t seem to realise that they can’t cite sources in their decisions however they damn well please. There is also an education outreach component involving work with students of the six NZ universities that offer an LLB course.
Specific requirements for this position:
- A mark lower than 60% in your university’s Legal Ethics paper.
- Deep personal hatred of italicised Latin terms.
- An equivocal character reference from a university lecturer.
Preference will be given to applicants whose souls were permanently disfigured in a large corporate law firm.
Applications close 18 March 2018.
