Our law centres



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.

“The way
you helped
my whānau was
such a comfort.”
