Community Lawyer | Rōia Hapori

Community Law Wellington and Hutt Valley is a registered charity providing free legal help for individuals and for community groups. We also provide restorative justice services.

One of our existing community lawyers has taken up a new role with us so we need someone to take her place and build on the amazing free legal help programme she and others have developed. There are some basic things we require such as great organisational ability and exceptional diplomacy and pleasantness under pressure. But we’re looking for a lawyer who takes day to day challenges in their stride and grasps the bigger picture – what we really need is:

  • Someone who wholeheartedly believes in working with the rest of us to improve access to justice and use the law to empower the disadvantaged members of our community
  • Someone who is a delight to work with and knows how to get on with others from all walks of life
  • Someone who is highly self motivated and thrives in an independent work environment
  • Someone who is committed to sharing our journey towards biculturalism and honouring the Treaty of Waitangi

We pride ourselves on being a fun, flexible and family friendly place to work so if you want to be a part of our kaupapa then check out the Job Description here.
