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.
