About the CLM:
Written in everyday language, the Manual contains over 1000 pages of easy-to-read legal info and comprehensive answers to common legal questions. From ACC to family law, health & disability, jobs, benefits & flats, Tāonga Māori, immigration and refugee law and much more, the Manual covers just about every area of community and personal life. It’s for people living in Aotearoa New Zealand (and their advocates) to help themselves.
By buying a copy of the Manual, you will get a hard copy of a good-looking and very useful legal reference book to have at hand when you, your family, or people you work with need some help.
Your support directly contributes to a fairer, more accessible justice system, and to better results for people with less. You also increase our chances of producing the Manual again, year after year.

A basic, plain English guide that contains practical answers to questions about pregnancy and the law.
It covers questions like what are some of my options after a positive pregnancy test?, what healthcare can I get while I’m pregnant?, can I get time off work while I’m pregnant?, can I keep going to school if I am pregnant or have a baby? and much more.
The guide has been written with young pregnant people in mind, but information that you’ll find in here will be just as helpful for all whānau (including the other parent), advocates and the wider community.
