The teaching of Indigenous content in an LLB course can have a great impact on the learning of students. This article identifies three key types of Indigenous content that can be incorporated in an LLB course: Indigenous Legal Issues, Indigenous Perspectives and Indigenous Law. The author draws on his experience as a lecturer of Public Law and Māori Customary Law in order to show the benefits that teaching this content will have in a legal education, as well as the difficulties one may face when incorporating the content into the curriculum.
