Got a legal problem? Maybe we can help. We’re lawyers and we’re also community workers. We listen carefully, we’re whānau friendly, and we help you find solutions you feel comfortable with. We’re passionate about making sure that everyone in Aotearoa, no matter how little money you have, has access to justice and enjoys real equality.
Community Law is all around the country, from Kaitāia to Rēkohu (the Chathams). We offer all sorts of free legal help, from easy-to-read information, to community workshops, to one-on-one legal help.

Our online resources and community workshops are for all New Zealanders. However, we aim to give free one-on-one legal help to people who don’t have much money – for example, if you’re on a benefit or have a low income. We also aim to help vulnerable people – for example, if you’re struggling with housing or living with violence.
Community Law helps with all kinds of legal problems, from employment, family and housing issues to criminal matters, human rights and Māori land. In general, we don’t help with issues about your property or business.
During the Covid 19 response, most Community Law Centres are still giving free legal support by phone and/or online.
Please find the contact details of your nearest Community Law Centre here to access their services.
We’re updating legal rights information during COVID 19 response right now and will have that information available on our website soon. Watch this space.
For now, you will also find out useful information on our Community Law Manual Facebook page.
The distribution of resources from our Online Bookshop are on hold until further notice.
