Community Law lawyers and caseworkers clock up hundreds of thousands of kilometres of travel every year. We hold legal clinics in most suburbs of our big cities. We travel to marae, community centres, Heartlands offices and many prisons, so that every person in New Zealand has equal access to free legal help, no matter where you live.
We have 24 Community Law Centres throughout Aotearoa New Zealand, and we send lawyers to over 120 outreach locations. We’re in big cities and tiny towns, from the West Coast to Waitematā.

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.
