Our law centres



Community Law lawyers and caseworkers clock up hundreds of thousands of kilometres of travel every year. We hold legal clinics in most suburbs of our big cities. We travel to marae, community centres, Heartlands offices and many prisons, so that every person in New Zealand has equal access to free legal help, no matter where you live.

We have 24 Community Law Centres throughout Aotearoa New Zealand, and we send lawyers to over 120 outreach locations. We’re in big cities and tiny towns, from the West Coast to Waitematā.

“The way
you helped
my whānau was
such a comfort.”

Education Workshops

We provide legal education on a wide range of topics and we run sessions from our offices and from other venues in the community. Search our education calendar to find a public education session that interests you.

We also organise “private” education (not open to the public) for rōpū Māori, community groups, schools, alternative education providers and others. If your group is interested in getting educated, contact your local Law Centre directly.
