ABOUT US

During COVID 19 level 4 - We are all working from home and checking voice messages remotely. Clients can call us on 03 3666870 or 0508 CANLAW, or they can email admin@canlaw.org.nz.

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.

EDUCATION

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 here 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 us directly.

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.
