Third year law student editing a journal, nbd

Victoria University LLB and BA student Indiana Shewen has landed herself the role of 2016 student editor of the Māori Law Review.

The position requires her to assess the impact of law on Māori each month.

Descending from Taranaki tribes Te Ᾱtiawa and Ngāti Mutunga, she acknowledges the importance of addressing Māori legal issues to a community of which she is apart.

Shewen is looking forward to fulfilling the new responsibility and said, “getting this role means a lot to me because growing up, my Mum taught me the importance of my family history and the prestige of my culture. I came to law school with the intention of using what I learn to address legal issues facing Māori.”

Co-editor of the Māori Law Review and lecturer Dr Carwyn Jones is very supportive of the decision to introduce Shewen to the editorial team. Having previously worked as a research assistant for Jones, Shewen has developed knowledge and insight of equal value to her new position as student editor.

Shewen is majoring in Māori Resource Management and Public Policy.
