Māori members from across our 24 centres come together to form the Māori Caucus of Community Law Centres o Aotearoa, Ngā Kaiāwhina Māori Hapori o te Ture. The Māori Caucus works to ensure that CLCs:
Our Ngāi Tahu Māori Law Centre specialises in Māori land for all Ngai Tahu members and any Māori with Māori land issues who lives in the South Island. Some of our centres have Kaupapa Māori teams, with Māori lawers and support workers, who can provide legal help within a tikanga Māori framework.
If you would like to contact the Māori Caucus, or to speak with someone about strengthening partnerships between Community Law Centres and iwi throughout Aotearoa, please contact:
Wi Pere Mita and Manawa Pomare
Phone: 021 201 5090
The purpose of this hui is to strengthen and enhance Community Law’s ability to meet the high unmet legal needs of Māori within our respective communities, to look at how Community Law can better support its kaimahi Māori, and to expand kaupapa Māori legal services throughout the country.
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.
