Free Legal Advice in Your Neighbourhood

Our Community Lawyers visit your local neighbourhood in the greater Wellington region on a monthly or weekly timetable. We call these Outreach Clinics.

At Outreach Clinics, you can come and meet privately with a lawyer for free legal advice, just like at our offices. Have a look below to see when we are next in your community and whether you need to book ahead.
