The University of Otago law camp could be cancelled as a meeting is called to discuss concerns raised by students.

The university confirmed that it will be meeting today with Souls (the Society of Otago University Law Students), the group that organises the annual camp, which is due to be held this weekend.

Today's meeting is expected to review the concerns raised by students.

"Concerns were raised last year by a parent concerned about nudity and a second parent raised concerns about excessive alcohol consumption.


"Further concerns about the camp have come to light over the weekend," Professor Tony Ballantyne, Pro-Vice Chancellor of Humanities confirmed.

The meeting follows Herald revelations of excessive drinking, jelly wrestling and nudity at previous years' law camps.

The university is investigating after a former student, who did not want to be named, said she attended a second-year law camp in 2012, which descended into "an American fraternity house".

Meanwhile, a former University of Otago law student has claimed members of the law faculty have acted inappropriately towards women for years.

"Otago Law has been a . . . smorgasbord of young, impressionable women for men in the faculty," said the woman in a message to a third party following a Herald on Sunday investigation.

The woman agreed to allowing the Herald to use her comments albeit anonymously.

​"Even if relationships weren't consummated, there were a lot of inappropriate conversations, caresses and carry-ons," she said.

In one of her first days at the university she recalls a staff member walking behind her and complimenting her physique.


"He once walked up the stairs behind me, whispering in my ear, 'you have such a lovely bum'.

"Being young ... I felt so special because for years I was his favourite," the woman said.

The Herald on Sunday reported on claims of drinking and nudity at a camp that second-year law students of Otago attend.
