Our law centres

ABOUT US

We work to reduce and remove barriers to the law. We provide quality, free legal help to people in Canterbury and the Grey and Westland Districts, who face barriers in accessing justice.

Our offices are closed at COVID alert level 3 & 4, but we still offer free legal services. You can reach us in the usual ways – by phone and by email.
